Default Squeak from rear when going over bumps

I have a 2005 WRX with 550 miles on it. I've noticed that lately when i go over a somewhat substantial bump, the front is silent, but then the back wheels go over it i get a squeek. It's like a very short, but high pitched "booop." Dunno how else to explain it. Is this something wrong or just me being too picky?

I have an '03 WRX and I get a creaking sound from the rear tophat area over bumps, but I've done spring and strut work. Do a search on creaking or squeaking rear suspension and see if any of the threads match your problem. The solution if it's like mine, seems to be to lube the top hat area. Do a search and you should be able to find some good info. Good luck!

Any suspension mods on it yet?

If not bring back to dealer and "fix please"

Sorry can't help ya then. Most bumping I've experienced and read about is from adding rear aftermarket sway bar, lower springs, or aftermarket exhaust. Any of the above or combo could lead to rear "bump" on muffler or spare tire well. Do some searchin'

Good luck.

Sorry,
N
