My friend had the same issue with the same truck. Its your driveshaft yoke that goes into the transmission. There was an issue with the way its machined. What you are hearing is a vibration from the splines that move when the suspention is flexed by either braking or taking off. The driveshaft then acts like a big tuning fork causing chirp

What brake ststem do 2001 silverados have? rear brakes

Hi. Your 2001 Chevy Silverado is equipped with Antilock Brake System (ABS). You will identify also if your car is equipped with ABS by looking at the instrument panel for a yellow ABS indicator light after you turn on the ignition.

All the best!

New rotors,pads ,e brake .e brake makes scraping sound

Are you sure it isn't the backing plate rubbing on the rotor. Really common for them to rust out and cause all kinds of noises and issues.

Just replaced calipers and pads on 2002 1500 Silverado LS/HD. Rear brakes make "rubbing" noise when driving; the noise immediately stops when I apply the brake. What's the rub? I've applied lube in all...

if your pads are new, it could be the one making the noise! in time it will go off, pads is still fitting itself to the worn part of the metal plate/shim!
