HIgh pitched squeak, hmmmmm.

Does it do it when you go over a bump, or more on acceleration and deceleration? What about when you go around corners? Does it do it in reverse as well as drive?

More than likely, it isn't the rearend if its a squeak. Rearends make more of a groaning type of noise when they start to go south. What condition are the brakes in, does it do it while braking?

Get back to us soon.

Could be one of the following;

U Joint
Wheel Bearing
Brakes

none will require a loan to repair!

Could be the bushings in the rear leaf springs, or possibly the
shock mount bushings. I think the leaf springs also have
anti-squeak pads between the leafs.
