abw0004 Okay it can be several things. I have the same problem and still can not find what is wrong but I will try to help you the best I can. Try the U-joints, CV's, mud in linkage to the transmission, and a loose bolt. Let me know if it is not any of these. I am still trying to find my problem too haha

NHrubicon I first heard the chirping on my 03 rubicon, automatic...and it was the driveshaft bearings going. Replaced with a tom woods and noise is gone.
Second time, it was front universals on the axle of my wife's 94 Grand Limited your chirping, in my opinion, is some universals going somewhere-if not drive shaft, then an axle! Don't wait too long.
To 'test' a suspected joint, spray it liberally with white lithium spray grease-do only ONE at a time. Drive it and see if the noise disappears. If it does-that one is the culprit. Might be able to test it by jacking up the axle and running the wheel around by hand, but they may not chirp without a load on them. But that's how we found the bad driveshaft...

Chirping/Shuttering/Squeaking especially when starting out or going over bumps

I am hearing a chirping sound when I'm starting to drive, especially up hills when there is more load on the start out and when going over bumps.

At first I thought it was the sparrows but I took the front drive line out and its still doing it!!

Any Ideas?
