Weird squeek coming from the rear

So I love driving with my windows down and recently there's been a loud squeaking noise that sounds like its coming from the right rear of the stang. We just had a brand new suspension installed back to stock cause the aftermarket we had when I bought it was falling apart. And we also got new tires as well. The squeak is like a "squeak squeak squeak squeak" type noise rather than a long "squuueeeaaakkk" lol that's the only way I can think to describe it. I live on a brick street and it squeaks extremely loud and a lot going over the bricks but on paved streets it's just barely there. But the catch is, the squeak completely goes away whenever I use the brakes. Anyone know what this might be?

Thanks everyone for the help on figuring it out. Does anyone know how to fix it and how much it might cost? Just need to know cheap or expensive

It's always on bumps. Loud squeak. Faint when driving on smooth surfaces but always goes away when I use the breaks

No, it's definately the springs bushings, your springs are rubbing on straight metal right now, you need the bushing to go under it

I had a squealing from the back right when I got the car, found out it was from my pipes (who knows how) it was like metal rubbing on something, the rubber stopper wasn't there so it was like metal on metal. I just got them made into turn downs and the squeal went away lol.

Yeah actually my duals were smacking into my driveshaft a few months back but we had them re bent out of the way so I know it wasn't that. I'll have it checked out and see what happens

One of my exhaust tip hangers was rattling on the stamped flange around my gas tank it's like a 3" wide flat peice where both halves are put together, simply bend it up 1/2 and inch haven't had any problems since
