    There is a squealing sound coming from the rear of my truck when I start out from a dead stop it only happens for a second, then goes away when I reach 3-4 mph. It sounds kind of like tire squealing, but I'm starting out at a slow speed. Anybody know what this sound is?

    thanks

    could be a bad wheel bearing, or something to do with your drive shaft.

    Possible causes could be wheel bearing, driveshaft pinion bearing, or u-joint. You could jack up the rear wheels and have someone put it in drive while you tried to locate the source. I'd definitely try that first before you take a shotgun approach and start replacing stuff. None of those jobs are minor endeavors. Good luck.
