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.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?

    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need

    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
