Default Squeaking noise coming from rear end of truck!

I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this but I thought it might be suspension related? Anyway, I hear the noise when I push the back bumper up and down. Do you guys have any suggestions where the noise might be coming from? I can't really tell which side it is, if it is on a side. It makes the noise no matter what part of the bumper I push up and down. Driver side, passenger side, or in the middle, it makes a squeaking noise. If you guys could give some advice on where to look I'd appreciate it! Thanks

If not the shocks then probably the springs.

I just found what was causing the noise. Believe it or not, it was the parking brake cable rubbing against the brake like cable! I separated them and no more noise! All this time thinking it was something with the suspension and it turns out to be that! Anyway, thanks for the advice guys.

Glad to hear it was something simple.
