Loud squeak, right rear - ideas?

Ive got a really. REALLY loud squeak coming from (what sounds) like the right rear of my Spider.

Its been there a while, but TBH I have been too lazy to do anything about it.... until now.

Its loud enough to hear at speeds up to about 40mph, its a cyclical squeak and does not change in relation to wheel speed (ie, almost always constant). It will do it about 75% of the time.

I recently replaced the rear shocks/springs and the squeak was the same before/after. The whole rear of the car is polybushed and as far as I can tell these are in good condition.

Ideas appreciated!

etc etc etc!
