Control arm bushings. Soak some oil around them let them sit and try bouncing the car. If it stops u just figured it out.

I have actually had a time where it was my spring rubbing on my lower control arm. Loaded the pocket with fluid film and gone

Give the stabilizer bar bushings a squirt as well.

Mine had terrible squeaks and creaking when driving over any bumps. For a couple of years we greased the front bushings and it was quiet for the season. Replacing the front control arm bushings eliminated almost all the squeaking.
