    Hey guys, I went out to the desert to do a little bit of wheelin with my lady today and when we got back the pavement my truck had this weird squeeling sound coming from the rear end. At first I thought it was sand or some rocks that got caught in my rear drum brakes, but the sound isn't all the time...its just when I throttle up...like rev it up when I 'm driving...not while i'm in neutral. I checked the spare tire...the muffler and all that stuff...i'm starting to think its my drive shaft. Any thoughts?? Oh and it's loud! But its only when I goose it to accelerate...Its weird :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :( :( :(

    Thanks for any input guys :eek:

    Yeah, I gots boost
    My best guess sight unseen is driveshaft... I suggest you take a nice strong jet of water to the underside and see if that loosens anything up for ya. If not, you would have to take a video or something for us to really guess.

    Thats what I was thinkin...I'm gonna stop by the self serve was tomorrow and spray the hell outta it and see if that helps :eek:

    I've narrowed it down so...Its not the brake, the spare tire isn't loose and my muffler supports are solid...its either my rear diff or the drive shaft I think...but like I said I'm not sure :notsure:

    All I know is that it sounds $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ :laugh:

    I say hit the whole driveline with some high pressure water, then grease up everything with a zerk afterward....see if that doesn't kill the problem.

    Thanks for the ideas guys!

    I took it through the wash today and it did get better so I think it's some rogue sand in there...
