Chiuaua barking! Bushings or shocks ?

I hear a Chiuaua barking when I go over speed bumps.
Is it the bushings going, or the shocks going ?

Hi, I would suspect the upper arm bushes in the front suspension, are they standard spec? Mine are new but even they squeak a little for a mile or 2 when the weather is cold as it has been recently, could it be weather related? (I had an Alfa Sprint cloverleaf in the past and the handbook even mentioned the bushes in that would be 'noisy' for a few miles until warm which is obviously not specific to 156s but does show that the rubber is obviously expected to be a little more rigid in cold spells).
