You need to have the fluid level in your rear differential checked. When you say drone that can also be the fuel pump making a noise. Have you replace the fuel filter in the last 50,000 miles. If not replace it as a partially clogged fuel filter will cause the fuel pump to overwork. It can also be the exhaust system vibrating against the frame. Check the exhaust system mounts.

At times feels like driving on rippling surface and can feel it in the gas pedal


Nearly 100% sure that you have a failed gasket in your transmission, causing the transmission pump to suck air instead of transmission fluid. CHECK YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL, and consider having a standard transmission service performed as soon as possible (fluid and filter change).
Also, if you have recently had a transmission service done, they left out a small gasket (I've had that happen before).

High pitch droning sound


There is a metal tab on some pads that contacts the rotor to make hideous noises telling the driver they need to replace the brake pads. It's in your owner's manual.

Rear end locking up on my 1998 chevy extended cab c1500. What's the problem?


If the c locks for axles are moving around it might cause the pinion to bind an lock the rear end until you backed up and if the pinion is loose it might all stack out and cause your problem. Understand this is just a wild guess.
