If it's a "whining" , "grinding" or "roaring" noise - stay away from it ! 149,000 is a lot of miles for any vehicle, especially a 4x4 that could've been off-road and abused a lot.

While there aren't any open recalls I'm aware of for that concern, it may very well fall under the powertrain warranty (5 years, 60,000 miles). The most common rear end noise concern we get is a chattering/noise from the rear end in turns caused by the breakdown of additives in the rear axle fluid causing the limited slip clutches to chatter. The cheapest, easiest fix for that concern is an $8 bottle of "friction modifier", available at the dealerships parts department, that you can add to the rear axle. It will work its way into the friction material, usually quieting the noise after 500 miles or so.

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup

The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.

I have a 2000 Z714x4 silverado i drove 370 miles and when i got off the highway and came to astop and re excelerated there was a squeeking noise coming from the rear end. Whwn you get up to about 50 miles...

It's possible that the rear axle u-joint is shot, they can make a squeaking noise when bearings in the u-joint go, and it's located right in front of the rear axle, so the location of the sound also points to this as the possible problem. countrycurt0
