I have an '05 Frontier 4X4 and the other day I noticed what sounded like a squeaking sound coming from the rear end. I only hear it when I'm under about 20mph, and only when I have power going to the rear wheels. When I let off the gas and am coasting (even in gear) it stops squeaking. It first started after driving on a very rough dirt road several days ago, but has not stopped. I washed the underside around the rear differential and driveshaft and it stopped for a while, but soon came back. It sounds like it is in a rotating piece, as it's frequency increases as speed increases, but again, it stops over about 20mph. I have looked underneath and found nothing loose. I didn't see anywhere to grease anything. Anyone have any thoughts on what this might be and how to address it? Any ideas are appreciated.
Thanks,
Russ

There are some driveline issues with some of the 2nd gens based on some of the threads I've observed, but first guess would be a u-joint. How many miles?

Sounds like the rear drive shaft u-joints, just had the same problem. Covered under the powertrain warranty.
