    At about 0-10mph, maybe more (muffler is too loud /forums/images/icons/cool.gif ) I get this squeak squeak squeak repeatedly and it sounds like its coming from the rear end. It also increases as speed increases. However, I just greased the entire truck including u-joints. Is it a u-joint or worse a pinion bearing? Appreciate it guys!!

    Mine just started doing this yesterday. I've got a mud bog this weekend so I'm going to tear into it on Wed. I think its a U-joint also.

    This happened to my 72 and it was the u-joint. I replaced and all was fine.
