Odd sounds

Hey everyone. Some thoughts here

I have a 2007 Compass sport 2.4 with 5speed manual.

It seems when I release the brake pedal, from being stopped on the road or parked, move backwards, or experience some kind of rear end squat I get a strange squeaking/springing sound. It's odd. Any ideas? The sound became apparent rather quickly. Seems to habe shown up within the last couple weeks, Ball joints for the control arms in the rear maybe?

It sounds especially loud I'm releasing the brake pedal after I've been stopped, at an intersection or parked, for example.

Let me know what you think.

Tie rods made this sound for me. Replaced them both an drives brand new. Only way to tell is putting the Jeep on a lift. They should have movement then.

I lifted the front and checked for play in the tierods and there wasn't any.

I don't think the rear end has tierods though.
