    When driving in reverse the truck is making squeaky sounds especially when you turn the wheel. Anybody know what is wrong or how to fix? Thanks

    Sounds like a high squeak and i think its coming from the front end. It started a few weeks ago and it only happens when backing up.

    Is it a "chirp chirp chirp" or a steady "squeeeeeel"? How are your front brakes? are they close to needing replacement? your warning sensors may be just starting to contact the rotors.

    Also, if you have 4x4 it could be a dry axle in front

    Its more of a chirp sound. The brakes are at about 50% so I don't think its that. I will take a look at the axle.
    Thanks

    Check CV joins. Brake pads both sides. 50% means nothing. You need to check for crack and make sure the sliders are not frozen.

    Also check the rear brakes and axle.

    Cleaning your brakes is not a bad Idea. and adjusting them.

    Not as many as the 98..
    Is it 4wd? Worn CV joints up front can cause the chirping noise, especcially when the wheel is turned to its max.
