Default 2011 RX squeal sound

Hi all,

I've got this irritating squeal sound when I ride over speed bumps, already for a few years.
Every time I go to the dealer, they try to fix it, though never fixed it completely. Once they added some kind of lubrication, another time they changed one of the suspension parts. However I still have the issue.

The squealing sound can be heard here:

Any idea what the reason is? I'm going back to the dealer soon and would love to hear some suggestions that so they might fix it.

Thanks for the link. Was looking the wrong keyword. The problem is indeed the same one.
Unfortunately it isn't really "comforting" that Lexus hasn't solved this problem yet? Basically you have to replace the shocks every 5000 miles or what?

I'm from Belgium and still have 1 year of warranty. Will forward the thread to the dealer so they could maybe look into it.

Replacement of the rear trailing arm could be a good idea and might be the cause. The trailing arm and some other suspension parts actually have some rust on it.
