Horrible sound under accel, 98 4x4

In first gear mostly or when torqued under load, there is a horrible squeaky, chirpy noise, almost sounds like the drive-shaft is is rubbing on a head shield under load. Obviously I Checked that, and also all exhaust brakets, lubricated the u-joints and slip yokes.... any ideas on where I should check next?

Check the rear axle, see if it's twisting and putting the u-joint under stress.

Thanks, and Hello.

So the noise has gone away... I was driving home in some flooded roads (love the taco) and in the next morning the noise is %100 gone, now I don't know if it was the grease working it's way into the joints or what but I'm happy, thanks.

Maybe some Dirt that got washed away or Rocks go dislodged.

I would inspect the truck again. Check the Gear fluid, Brakes, And bushing.

I just recently got the truck, it's in awesome shape 150 kms on the clock. so i did the timing belt, waterpump and engine coolant.

next I'll get some fresh gear oil for both diff's, transfer and tranny.

the transfer uses 75w-90?

My truck has done that before, it would only last for a few seconds then stop. I never did figure out what it was, but I suspected the carrier bearing.
