Soft top creaks when braking

I have a 2012 Wrangler 4 door soft top. When the top is closed and I apply the brakes, it makes a lot noise - sounds like large rain drops hitting it. It started making the noise over the winter and I thought it was happening due to the cold but now it is 80 degrees and still doing it. It only happens when I start braking.

I have a 99 TJ soft top and when I replaced it I got a similar noise. It ended up being the frame itself where the side frame mates to the top frame. It rests on a plastic cut out and that is where it was squeaking...metal rubbing plastic. I used some silicone lube and it went away. Maybe that helps!
