Rear End Noise

I have a rear end clunking/binding/creeking noise when I exit my driveway, go over speedbumps, even during general driving. Kind of sounds like a boat creeking when you are in rough waters.

If anyone wants I can try to get an audio clip of is extremely loud...(can be heard over radio 3/4 way up)

With all the parts that could possibly go bad, anyone have an idea where to start? I would like to tackle this before it takes out more parts with it.

I had the exact same noise when going up my driveway. It was a bolt on the subframe crossbar that needed tightening. There are 4 crossbars. 2 that go from the center front under engine) to sides (between front and rear wheel), and 2 that go from center rear to sides, 2 bolts per crossbar. All you need is a torx bolt socket. Easy fix. Note: I have a convertible. I'm assuming the coupes have these crossbars as well.
