My RAV4 makes a high pitched squeaking noise when going over bumps. I think it is something loose like metal rubbing against metal or could it be spare tire? Any ideas? I’ve looked but can’t find source of metalic Chirp/squeak. Help!

Appreciate you too. Could you give me the name of a silicon spray maker you’d use?
"Blaster Industrial Strength Silicone Lubricant" at O'Reillys and other auto parts stores. Napa Auto used to carry a similar spray silicone called "Sylglide Spray". No need to disassemble the rear sway bar and bushings. Just spray the rubber bushings on both sides real good where the bar goes through. If there is a crack or crevice in the bushings you can use the little plastic straw and shove it in the crack and try to get some spray inside.

Check your rear license plate at the bottom. That often rubs on the hatch.
