Question Noise from rear struts - '09

This isn't a big deal either way, but at very low speeds, as in going through a parking lot or something when I go from concrete to pavement or vice versa, when there's either a rise or drop in pavement to cause suspension travel, my rear struts just make a little noise. I have the eibach pro kit so I really don't think the struts are just blown or anything, but could they possibly be loose? The noise is more of a creaking sound than rattling or anything to be alarmed about.

I'm handwashing the car tomorrow and will give it all a look but don't really have the tools to do much dissassembly.

check to make sure the bottom bolt is tight pulling the steel washers together. Had this happen to me last Thursday it was making a jingling sound at 10-20 mph.

Thanks, I guess they make the noise at speed as well but I can't hear it with all the other noise.
