I have Steeda lowering springs on the '13 ST, and it has about 58,XXX on it with about 30,XXX on the lowering springs. Every time I get out of the car there is a slight squeaking coming from the rear of the car. What my concern is, is it the springs/shocks or could it be the parking break as i know that could cause a squeaking as it is used so often? If anyone has any insight on the matter PLEASE respond, any information is better then nothing. Thank you!

I don't know if the parking brake is where I'd start my search. If you have it pulled tight, I doubt that's it. Why don't you leave it released and get out (put it in gear first of course, on flat ground) and see?

I kind of also doubt it's the springs though. More likely a bushing or ball joint. Lowering usually puts more stress on these components when you change the geometry, but I haven't researched the effects of lowering on the ST yet myself.

Bounce on the tailgate and see where the noise is coming from.
You could also push it and see if it makes noise.
I'm thinking grease sway bar bushings
