I've got a rear end "chirp"

Hello all. I've got a chirp sound coming from the back of the truck. I've got a 2004 f-250 crew cab short bed. I only notice it when I am driving slowly and it will make the sound over little bumps in the road. If you jump on the suspension or anything, it won't make the sound, but tiny little bumps cause the chirp. Had a buddy ride in the bed and he could hear it. Said he though it was coming from somewhere near the driver side wheel under the bed. He tried to bounce it a little but while I was under and it seems like it's up high near the floor of the bed. I was laying near the shock and other suspension parts and it really sounded like it was up higher. Any thoughts on what this chirp could be? I can't really tie it to anything I have done to the truck because I really haven't done much to it. New shocks were installed last year and, again, I was laying right next to the shock and I think I can rule it out. Thanks for the help.
