rear end squeak

i dont know along the past days ive had a lil squeak when i pull off on the truck specially when turning... today 11 pm it started to be pretty loud so i engaged the 4low and let the truck drive itself on 1st gear (uphill) while i walked around the truck to see were the sound came..

i thought for the past days it might be the cv (and i still think it also makes a sound now..)

and realised the sound came off somewere near the rear diff.... any ideas what this could be? tomarrows a holiday at my country so i doubt my mechanic is gona be working so prolly ill start touching it up to see what i can find.. but any advice or ideas what this could be?

yep. exactly that. lifted the truck on jacks and put in gear to hear were it came from and ended just being the u-joints.. atleast wasent anything bad and the gears are perfect and the spacer i got made works perfect. gave it a nice frame cleaning and some spray lubricant the used at the shop and now nothing squeaks sounds or anything. :)
