Rear end noise, shaking

Check the rear driveshaft u-joints. Most likely the rear u-joint at the differential is seized/seizing. May here a rotational squeaking at low speeds. If you want to check it yourself. Remove the rear driveshaft and move the u-joint in each direction and check for tightness. Do so with both ends. Let me know how it works out for ya!

Squeaking that speeds up with acceleration.

It is extremely difficult to say for sure without being able to hear the noise myself, but it seems like you may be describing the sound of a driveshaft U-joint that is fixing to come apart.

I had a squeaking noise coming from the rear of my truck when i started to accelerate after braking at a stop sign i replaced the pads, go the rotors reglazed and replaced the drivers side rear caliper...

Sounds like a ujoint is frozen in the rear driveshaft.Remove the rear driveshaft(block the wheels so it does not roll on to you).check the joints,there should be no play and you should have very little resistance when rotating the joint.It is most likely the joint at the rear axle.

1999 explorer in 4-high on slippery road there is clunking This was my original question. powernut suggest I check the U-joints and the front axle joints. I checked them and they are fine. Another said it...

Try raising the vehicle in the air, use jack stands to safely support it, all four wheels off the ground. Now with transmission in neutral, go under and turn the driveshafts by hand and try to detemine where the noise is coming from. If that truck has a double U-joint setup of the driveshaft(s) check those realy good and double check the axel U-joints. Turn the front wheels either far right or left and spin the wheels (by hand), both sides, is there any binding? Make sure the axel shafts are turning while you spin the wheels. Look for rusty powder around all the U-joints listen for squeaking too. If you can't find anything wrong like that then start the truck and put in "4 High" and "D", let it idle and go under and listen for the noise. Don't get caught up in the driveshafts!!!!!!!

When driving the suv makes this loud squeaking noise almost like the brake pads scrubbing but the brakes are good.

Check the driveshaft u-joints. They can make the noise you describe if the bearings are shot. Also, as noted on my clarification request, double check the brake wear indicators. To check the u-joints, put the trans. in neutral as you drive, the noise should disappear.

ther are no lubriction points on the driveshaft,if you rev the engine does the noise get louder or go away?try power braking the car ,make sure e-brake works properly if so apply it ,place the car in drive,place your left foot on the brake ,right on the accelerator,rev to 2000rpm for no more than 10 sec, this is like puttting a load on the drive train,this may unmask your noise,it appears this may be some sort of exhaust rattle since nothing is moving undereath car

I have been hearing a squeaking noise and attributed it to front driveshaft u-joint. Last night the transfer case just came apart. As in the case is shattered into several pieces. I unbolted the front...

I have heard of this happening before, when the vehicle got left in 4 wheel low and driven to fast.

Long story short if you didn't do this I would go to the junk yard and get a used one. They are very interchangeable and doesn't take a lot of skill.

Squeaking noise at low speeds

take the front wheels off and look between the brake scratch plate and the rotor. - a stone trapped there will cause this noise. Also between the driveshaft and the hub, where the shaft enters the hub at the back. l
Look too for either a support bracket for a brake line or ABS wiring touching the driveshaft. Also there is an antisqueal spring on the back of the brake calipers someotimes this will touch the outside of the brake rotor, you'll see a shiny mark on the rotor if something is touching. Also the scratch plate on the back of the rotor can touch the inside of the wheel rim, again look for a shiny mark all the way around the inside of the rim. Lastly look at the face of the brake rotor for a circular scratch - indicates a stone stuck in the brake pad. Have fun!
