    probably broken springs if low, but get the rear drop links and shockers checked out as well.

    Does sound like spring or shock related if its looking low. Though there are many other reasons for the knocking /squeaking

    Lol - I only noticed my car does this too (sounds asthmatic as the shocks compress going over speed bumps), when I'd turned the music down approaching a mate's house very early on a Saturday morning! I can confirm that Nicj's fix works - if I don't turn the music down until after I've gone over the speed humps, it doesn't do it.
