sounds like a failing u-joint,best make sure the rear joint is tight in its new yoke too. u-joints make a squeaking noise or a kind of crunchy sound when the truck starts to move and the driveshaft begins to rotate.one revolution it squeaks,the next revelution it squeaks again when the shaft spins to that same spot.you can relate this to the same as something stuck in your tire,as the tire revolves and the(can)hits the road ya get the noise once per revolution same as the driveshaft.the faster you go the more frequant the noise,right? hope I made sense. I think you should have it checked before it falls out that would suck.
