BAD squeeking from below

I have a noise that makes a consistant sqeeking at low speeds. My gf noticed it this weekend. I noticed it yesterday afternoon after driving down from western NC to Greenville sc. Started as a barely noticable sqeek i could hear slowing down to stop maybe arond 0-10 mph. now its gotten a lot more noticeable and I can hear it moving a long upwards to 30 then i think all the other noises kinda drown it out. it does it when i mash the brakes it does it in reverse and when its not in gear. All my fluids are fulll as of last weekend. seems like it is coming from the rear of the vehicle. thanks for any help folks. O yeah I took the truck by my trusty always reliable independent shop and they gave it a clean bill of health go figure.

trying to brainstorm..

what about the drum trans brake?

Follow-up Post:

can you hear it at really low speeds?

can you hear it coasting while the motor is off?

can you get under the truck and have someone push it back and forth to locate the issue?

i can hear it coasting while the motor is idle. i really dont think it could be the drum brake thats a good idea though. I know my transfer case leaks and i wouldnt be suprised if the shoes could be contaminated. ive rocked it back and forth and havent heard it.

I had that happen to me with my disco. It was loose bolts on the exhaust, I think at the collector, which would also explain why in a shop with the engine off, nothing would be noticed.

I second the U-Joint. Hang your head out the back while someone else is driving (slow obviously). This way you can at least narrow it down to centerline or off to one side (i.e. driveline vs. brakes)

You could also stap a creeper to the frame and have someone take off. This way you could hear the noise better. Bring a can of WD-40 and you may be able to fix it on the go.

(last part was a joke)

It's tough to get Phil worked up. He's a laid back kind of guy.

yeah man....


more diagnoising. squeek is coming from the right wheel zone. When I had it in low you could hear it squeak about every half revolution of the tire. only seems to get noticable once the truck is warmed up. maybe its a bearing but at 60k miles.. wheel bearings are tight and have been repacked. I dont think it a pinion bearing since its spining to fast to be the squeek I have.

I had what sounds like the same issue. I couldn`t figure it out, so I just kept driving on it because everything was still functioning perfectly fine, and then one day it just went away.

The only squeak I've had so far is when my E brake wasn't disengaging from the drive shaft all the way. Part my fault..part adjustment on the brake cable needed. Squeaked when moving (engine off and on) up to about 15 MPH. Just a guess though.

Everybody else's advice is beyond my experience.

I'm happy you clarified that. Read a post here where some nut put his D on axle stands and ran the friggin thing up to 60 MPH in his garage. Nothing here surprsies me anymore.

Hey, Phil...I know you have a D but what the hell is that in your avitar? Looks like a surplus Iraqi SCUD launcher with rocket fuel squirting out of the bottom. Been curious for months.
