    I've got a 2005 Tacoma DC 4x4 with 210,000kms (2" Lift Coils & 2" AAL). About a month ago I started hearing a squeaking noise coming from the left rear wheel when my truck was rolling forward at slow speeds or accelerating, but only when the truck is moving forward. When it rolls backwards, no squeak. The squeak occurs from stop to 25km/hr then subsides. I've jacked it up, put it on stands and let the tires spin forward - No squeak. I've pulled the tires off and let it spin - No squeak. There doesn't seem to be any contact with the rear brake shoes and the sound doesn't seem to be coming from the drive shaft either.

    So what I've gathered is that the squeak only occurs when there is weight on the tires and the truck is rolling/accelerating forward. I'm leaning towards rear bearing, but wouldn't the squeak occur in reverse as well if it was a bearing going bad?

    I'm a little stumped on this one. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Sounds to me like a bearing, not sure what else that could be.

    is the sound definitely coming from there? If not it could be your carrier bearing or u-joints

    I would say bearings as well. The wheel rolling when you're driving and there is weight on the bearing is not the same as you putting the truck up on a jack and spinning the tire.
