Most of the creaks come from chassis flex. A strut brace would stiffen up that area, but you would lose trunk space. Short of that, try stuffing the area below it with towels.

There are struts (shocks) that hold your rear deck lid open when you open the trunk. Check to see if those are worn out. Also, the plastic housing of the rear tail lights are flimsy, so check those to see if the little knob holding them in aren't loose. Good luck

Crawl in your trunk, look up, and jam some foam or towels inbetween the frame and the deck lid. Worked for me.
