I think it's coming from the bushings in my LCA's in the rear, and I think it's because I tightened the bolts too much at the unibody bracket. Could it be becuse they are to tight, or not tight enough?

you cant over tighten them and cause a squeak. The bushing itself is likely worn out. When you tighten the bolt in a bushing, it is simply securing the metal sleeve pipe of the pushing to the car frame bracket. You dont want the metal sleeve to move, the rubber bushing will reset itself around the sleeve. If the rubber wears out, I guess it could get loose against the pipe and squeak.

To make these last longer, people tighten the bushing bolt with the wheels on the ground or the axle tubes bearing the weight. But it will reorient itself anyway.
