Squeaking at 25

5 posts in this topic

I have a 98 Silverado and when I am going through a town at 25 mph I hear a high pitched, repetitive squeak kind of like a chipmonk. I assume it needs lube somewhere. I have a service manual to guide me through things but I am not sure what to look up. Any help would be appreciated!

Possible Ujoint, brake squeak, is it squeaking faster then the tires going around? If so, ujoint, if not, check brakes, jack the truck up spin the wheel see if you can hear it.

I would say it is about as fast as the tire is spinning, slower and faster speeds you don't hear it. I am pretty sure it is not the breaks, it never squeaks much when braking. I will try your suggestion, thanks.

I'd be willing to bet it's the front brake pad wear indicator. Usually they don't make noise when you apply the brake but they rub lightly on the disc when you are driving.

I'm gonna go with 4 wandering and say u-joint. Brake indicators generally are a more steady squeal, whereas a u-joint has a more repetitive squeak when its going bad.

    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
    • This warm front might help out
    • Kind of off topic but I recently got a fl12. Having problems seeing the jig even with the gain all the way up. Works great until about 20fow and the jig turns into a in and out flicker. Switched transducers and still the same. Any advice??
    • Is there some reason that you don't post the link of where this is from?   Clearly this is pasted from somewhere, so why not post the link?
