Z4 Creeks When I hit a dip or speed bump

I have a 2004 Z4 3.0 with 43,000 miles. I'm experiencing a creeking noise around the back right wheel when I take a dip or speed bump in the road. Does anyone know what this could be? Thank you in advance.

Sounds like a bushing in the control arm or the sway bar attachment area; but could also be spring/shock related.

I had a similar issue but in my case the sound was coming from the front (sometimes its hard to tell). All I had to do was tighten the bolts on the stabilizer bars under the the hood. There are two that attach to the fender well area and meet in the middle on the windshield side of the engine compartment. Super easy fix if thats the problem.

Mine would also make noise if I cornered aggressively.
