Creaking noise when jeep is uneven

Over the past month or so I've noticed that my 2006 Jeep Liberty Limited has started to make a creaking noise when it's a little off balance, such as driving down and uneven drive-way. I believe it's coming from the back? Thoughts???

I have a creaking noise as well, coming from the front wheel area when I turn the wheel. I took it to the dealership and they confirmed that it was the front ball joints, which had been recalled back in 2006. They said if it was the same issue it would be covered again, however they came back and said it was normal wear and tear, is that correct for only 58,400 miles? and only highway driven?
Mopar, do you hear it when you turn the wheel?

Update
I looked at where the rear sway bar mounts just like the above link. I believe I fixed my creaking. I loosened the bolts, put a little grease under the bar where it contacts the lower control arm and torqued the bolts to 70ftlb. If 70ftlb is what those bolts are supposed to be the dealer didn't have mine tight enough after doing the recall. I'll post an update if the noise comes back.
