High pitched noise from rear end

When I'm driving through my nieghbor hood at 20-25, It makes a high-pitching whining noise, and it sounds like its coming from the rear end, It goes away at 30-35+. Its been doing it for a couple months now. I think it might be getting louder. Its pretty annoying and makes your truck sound like a piece of junk coming down the street.
Any ideas?

It will make the noise right when you take off and continue to whine at you until you stop... Prob a good thing to replace anyways, not expensive.
