squeaking noise

All

I have noise! So, it basically sounds like a squeak or a chirp, and seems to happen mostly when you flex the car...meaning, on take off, turning a corner with a bump or pullin into driveway...almost like when the body flexes. I remember hearing this same thing on my speedster, but that was a replica and I just felt that would be a normal noise as those cars flex quite a bit when turning or going over a bump, etc.

It does NOT happen when I am normal driving...only on take off. Again - I have to say it is really when the body is being flexed a little if any of that makes sense.

Thoughts on what it could be? For now it is just annoying, but want to make sure there is no underlying issue I should have looked at?

Thanks all...

Garage
-A shock maybe (push down on each of the 4 corners when in the driveway to see if you can hear it)
-Motormount bushing (usually rattle when loose)
-Shock bumper (usually they rattle or clunk when worn)
-swaybar/control arm support bushings... (sometimes they squeak - silicon spray helps)
Could be number of things...

tried pushing on all 4 corners...nothing... which I guess I should be at least happy about in some fashion!
