Squeak when shifting from reverse to drive

Hey guys, just recently, I have noticed a squeak or chirp when shifting from reverse to drive. Back up, apply brakes, shift to drive, small squeak or chirp, drive away. Otherwise shifts fine with no other noises or issues. ATF good, any other fluids to check or any other ideas? 01 Limited 4.7

Went through something similar but was a really bad clunking noise among other things. Have your ujoints in your rear drive shaft checked. My one was seizing really badly causing the issue and noise. Interesting thing was there was no play at all or way to tell it was the ujoint and sounded like the noise was coming from inside of the driveshaft.
The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!
