Not sure if this is my u-joint
After doing some trail riding this past weekend, my truck started to make a squeaking/chirping noise. Its coming from the rear around my driveshaft. I have searched and found threads which led me to believe that this is my u-joint. Before i start messing with it i thought i would run this by you guys to see what you think it is.
When im in drive, it starts to chirp/squeak and gets faster as the truck goes faster. If i am at a crawl, it almost sounds like its a rubbing noise. It is a hollow sound.
Now what im really concerned about is when i put it in reverse, it makes a cracking noise like its under pressure then suddenly releases. Then it continues to make a loud ticking noise. So... do yall think its the u-joint or somthing else. I appreciate any help.
