Squeak in Drive, not reverse

1995 f150 5.8 255k

I have a pretty good cyclic squeak, only when I drive forward, nothing in reverse. I think it might be u joints or carrier bearing? I already took off passenger side drum brake to make sure the shoes werenít stuck, but I really think itís coming from the driveshaft, about twice per revolution. I uploaded a short clip of the noise:

eventually it will click in reverse, but that's right before it blows out and leaves you sit

Best way to check them

Chock the wheels. Set park brake
put transmission in neutral

crawl under, and at each ujoint, take driveshaft in your hand and try to turn it back and forth. Watch carefully, if the joint is bad, you will see it move.


I suspect the small cable in your brake drum has left loose/broken that adjusts your brakes. TBH, I would bet you that is your scratching noise

That's the cable that runs from the adjuster wheel clip, and goes up around the shoe hold down and attaches to the top post
