I was slowing down this morning to stop at a light and my window was rolled down. I heard a squieking noise comin form the rear of the truck. As i was taking off i heard it again but it got to fast to hear individual squieks and kinda stoped. Now every time i slow down if i have my window rolled down i can hear this noise if im going real slow....Any ideas at to what it might be. A baring in the rear end or something????

i got 100 bucks that says its one of your u-joints...

check them for play...grease them up...or put the truck up on jack stands and get a friend to slowly accelerate as you listen to where its coming from..

my guess is a u-joint tho[cheers]

u-joints will always make noise or vibrate when they're worn out. grab the d-shaft and check for any movement, any movement = failed.

more likely shit in the drums though
