Without hearing the noise it will be difficult to give you an accurate recommendation. Rubber bushings and moving suspension components can cause these type of noises. Also rubber seals where body panels come together such as doors to body can squeak as the body flexes over road surfaces. Enlist the help of a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to assist you in locating the source and repair of the squeak.
