Right rear suspension trouble

I've been having some weird noises come from my right rear wheel area. Before I changed shocks this summer the right exhaust would hit the axle over most bumps but after I replaced them both it lessened it to only over big bumps/with passengers. There also is a noise that sounds like someone's shoes squeaking when going over bumps coming from there too that randomly appears. Sometimes I'll hear it and it won't go away and then less frequently it won't even be there at all. When the noise is their if I apply brakes kinda sharply I can almost consistently make the noise. Lastly there's a noise similar to crickets (that's the best I can describe it) coming from the same area as well. The noise goes away though when applying brakes so idk if it is suspension or not even though I've changed rear rotors, pads and calipers in >4000 miles. I have no idea what the noises are and why my exhaust continues to bang against my axle over bumps. The left side never does though. All the noises come from the right. Kinda a noob to cars still so if these are dumb and simple sorry for the post. I just don't know what they are and how to fix them. Was thinking of just replacing all of my suspension bushings and go from there. Thanks for the help ahead of time!

I would check you control arm bushings. That may be the sounds you here. If so you should keep oem rubber bushings for the ucas and you could do aftermarket for the lcas. The oem uca bushings wont cause binding. Scotty would probably elaborate more on this since if you are gonna change them y not upgrade suspension so u can launch better

I am probably just going to get a pair of upper and lower control arms with bushings already in them since it's basically the same price. However I'm still puzzled by the squeaking/scraping noise that disappears when you apply brakes.

Have you checked the dust shield or the hardware kit on the brakes yet? Possible it may be ond of those. Most obvious would be your low on brake pads but you would notice that
