New to the forum, need some advice. I have a 2008 Frontier SE 4x4 . LOve it LLLLOOOOVVVEEE it. Have had little to no problems with it in the 5 years Ive owned it. It recently began making a rotating squeaking sound from the rear area. Narrowed down to definitely a drive train issue. (noise stops in neutral)
The noise originally seemed to be coming from the transfer case where the pinion exits to the drive shaft. A good soaking with W-D40 made it go away for a while , months actually. The noise is now back accompanied by a slight vibration in the rear between 50 and 60 mph. Also the dose of WD-40 is not working.
Im stuck on whether to replace drive shaft as well as pinion and rear propeller all in one with U joints already on it. But was wondering what all I can replace without getting into transfer case and the pumpkin?
Does this lend itself to being a bearing issue?
Let me know what you think
Thanks

Everything that I have been reading suggest that replacing the u joints will fix the problem. I have a squeaky cyclical sound on mine and am pretty sure it is the u joint

Hey thanks for the reply
Im thinking of getting a whole new driveshaft with ujoints and pinion alreday on it, I just wonder what the vibration is about, possible out of balance shaft
maybe.

Out of balance would make for a vibration that would be felt (if it were fairly OUT), they may just need replacing
