Is it my UUC Sways Squeeking?

I had my UUC swaybars installed under a month ago and they've been nice and quiet. I took it to an autocross two weekends ago and they were fine. I took it to Mosport GP this past weekend and near the end of the day I started hearing some squeeking sounds driving slowly in the pts.

I took the car out yesterday and I could hear the squeeking sound. It's almost like the sound of a box spring bed squeeking. The sound is constant, as long as I'm moving; however sometimes I hear it go away briefly. I haven't had the the chance to diagnose if it could be the pads slightly rubbing the rotors, but to my ears it doesn't sound like the brake pads.

For those who've had their UUC Swaybars squeek/make noise, can you describe how it sounded and how you resolved it?

Is that your only mod? I thought mine were squeaking for the longest time, turns out it was my urethane RTABs. Replaced them with M3 RTABs and the rear end has been all quiet. Make sure you lube the swaybar bushings with copper anti-seize. Works like a charm.
