Given your descriptions, it's very likely the rear shocks. It's a common issue with this car in climates with moisture.

this is my latest update on rear shocks problem, I had time to look at my rear suspension this week, it looks like defective bump stop also affects rear sway bar in addition to affecting rear shocks, after I kept driving my Kiz with bad shocks , my rear sway bar also started making noise every time I turn in a curve though the noise is very subtle at this moment, it looks like I might have to replace my rear sway bar links also, I am at a point of ordering rear suspension components, before doing that, I wanted to check with you to see, if any one replaced their rear coil springs, when replacing their shocks and bump stops, appreciating your help in advance.

yesterday I received a recall letter from Suzuki North America about defective vent hose or vent filter in certain 2010-2013 Kizashi's , the letter said, they found few cases where a spider building web in the vent hose might build negative pressure in the vent that could in turn cause the fuel tank to explode and cause fire, they wanted me to wait till I receive the second letter from them before taking the car to the nearest authorized dealer for fix.
