I just pulled the driveshaft. I got more than a drip or two but it was not too much fluid. I still have 2 1/4 inch of tail shaft in the t case.

The joints feel fine with no slop in them. I will probably get the driveshaft back in tonight or tomorrow, so I will post in here if the chirp goes away.

The two caps that are held on by the axle straps look fine and still have grease in them.

I did notice the drive shaft could move left and right a little in the t case(not a u-joint problem), and there is a greasy spot on the bottom of the Jeep above the tail shaft so I am going to replace the tail shaft seal and bushing before I put the drive shaft back in. I also bought a 30mm socket and fluid pump to change the fluid in the t-case, they were out of ATF+4 so I am going back tomorrow to buy some of that.

Should I put grease on the shaft that comes out of the t case that the drive shaft slips onto?

Both belts are newer and feel tight, the noise is not really a belt noise.

How about your bushings? Sway bar, shocks, leaf springs, body mounts?

The shocks, leaf sring, and sway bar link bushings are 2 years old, the rest of the bushings are 25 years old as far as I know. I jumped up and down on both bumpers and did not hear any squeaks, the noise also never happens when hitting bumps. If the new u-joints don't fix it I will check all of the bushings.

3 of the needle bearings in one of the caps were missing, so I am guessing that was the one making the noise. I won't be able to put the driveshaft back in untill monday though.

So I just put the rear driveshaft back in and took it for a drive.... IT STILL CHIRPS.

It does not chirp in 4wd. Any ideas?

Does the front driveshaft spin the opposite direction of the rear drive shaft?

My JK made a chirping noise after I bought it and drove me crazy until I finally had it checked out. Turns out my anti rattle clips in the brake pads were broken and the pads were loose and causing the chirp as they would hit the disc. The guy that checked mine out said this was a common problem in Jeep Wranglers. May not be your case but might be worth checking out...

I will check that, I did the brakes about 2 years ago. I don't remember it chirping before I did the brakes, and it did not chirp right after doing the brakes but one of the clips may have fallen off or something.
