The rear joint assembly on your front driveshaft is what is known as a double cardan joint. It consists of 2 u joints and a ballsocket assembly. buy a ballsocket overhaul kit, & 3 u joints for the front driveshaft (once you get started, you may as well change the front joint on the front shaft, as well) & go to work. this will remove the vibes, squeaking, etc. If you crawl beneath your pickup, you will find, I am 99% certain, that the back end of the front driveshaft has a little slop in it, Zero slop is authorized. Doesn't cost much, but you're in for a full afternoon's entertainment! Good Luck!
