Default Squeak from rear of truck

I have a squeak form rear of truck when going slow. Sounds like a wire would be around the drive shaft hitting something as it turns, as you speed up the sound goes faster and eventually you dont hear it after speed is built up. I checked
u-joints and they seem fine, jacked truck up and spun the tires and doesn't seam to be from the hubs. It doesn't go away by pressing the brake pedal. Any ideas? Thanks

Let the mouse out of the diff. He doesn't seem to be happy in there.

Get someone to walk behind the truck when your going really slow. Watch the tire and make sure its not wobbling, I had a similar problem and it turned out being a bent axle.

you would here it all the time if it rubbed but it would take a lot to bend the axle. also you would know structural damage and cosmic damage if axle was bent
