    Can you tell where the noise is coming from? My truck did this a while back. It ended up being the rear spring bushings. I hit them with some chain lube (for motorcycles) and it went away. Could be something different though.

    I put a stage 2 shift kit in my K5 and i get the same chirping noise a lot when it shifts into 2nd gear. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I hear swapping in a big block will cause the tires to chirp or even squeal a lot when you start out from a stop.
