Could be a spring isolator, could be a control arm bushing, could be a combination of things. The newest of these cars is pushing a decade old and suspension gets squeaky.

It seems to be a common problem. I'm pretty sure it's something to do with the caliper. There have been a few threads on it and that always seems to be the culprit. Does it stop when you push on the brakes?

Nope, its noticeable when driving slow or on a rocky road. Even breaking it dose it

Interesting. It could be the caliper pins need greased. But I'm not sure, most people with this problem say it goes away while braking.. I know mine does. Good luck.
