Squeaking from rear struts?

I took my ZM out last night and noticed when I hop into the driver seat there is a loud squeak coming the rear. Starting the car and the slowly reversing out of my driveway I continued to hear the squeak from the rear driver's side. Once I start driving it goes away. I took the car to lunch today and there was a little squeak when I first got in but nothing like last night.

Anyone have/had a similar problem?
Thanks, Kream

Nm, I'm sorry. I just found a post regarding the rear sway bar mounts.

this is usually the e-brake (when gettign in and out of the car). if you get in and out without the e-brake on, you shouldnt hear a squeek. happens on the majority of z4's.

Kream, maybe your e-brake isn't fully releasing until you start driving which is why it squeeks a bit reversing out of the driveway? just a guess

Is the squeak coming from high or low? I had two squeaks and a thud/knock a while back coming from the driver's side rear. One squeak and a thud were taken care of by having the rear sways re-torqued, however one squeak remains. This squeak definitely sounds as if it's coming from the top of the shock mount...
