Squeaking noise in rear

Looking for ideas or suggestions on what to check....

I've developed a random squeak somewhere in the rear of my 04 Rubi. It started a few weeks after I had a 2.5" OME kit installed back in early March. It seems to happen when I hit any little bump in the road or turn.

My initial thoughts were: 1) loose rear track bar, or 2) rear sway bar. The track bar, including relocation bracket, seems to be tight. The rear sway bar is a different story, but I'm not 100% sure which components of the rear sway bar system should OR shouldn't have play. I can basically grab the sway bar and slide it a 1/4" side to side. Is this normal? It looks like the movement is caused by the top mount being loose or worn.
