Vibrating/creaking/a noise around 9-12mph

Im not really sure how to describe this noise, but I'm hoping those of you who haw had this problem will know exactly what I'm talking about lol. It usually only happens when I'm going really slow, about 8-12mph. It happens on decel/braking, but also on coasting to a stop or when driving that slow. Sometimes on accel at that mph range too. Just sounds like something's making a noise underneath. Well I know it IS, just not sure what it is yet. Any ideas?

Check your u joints. I had that problem on another rig, and the needle bearings were dust. Is the noise coming from the front or the rear?

Can't tell for sure but I'd guess the front. It doesn't do it everytime either, just usually when I'm slowing down slowly.

Put the front on jackstands and rotate the wheels and see if u can duplicate the noise to help pinpoint it
