That bushing gets lubed by the product of choice you use in the tranny. I'm sure you have lube in the transmission? Is it full?

Thanks Eric, I concur on the loop and the car already has one. It also has a chromoly driveshaft good for 1200 hp and a scatter shield. The rear trans housing has a bushing inside that surrounds the rear trans output shaft to keep everything aligned and a seal on the outside that the front of the driveshaft yolk slips into. It's that seal and the yolk that are setting up the squeal when the lube wears off. The noise transfers to the driveshaft and gets broadcast out. I was hoping that someone had experienced this and found a lube that was a permanent solution. I appreciate everyone's ideas.

Is there a bearing in the tailshaft that can cause that? I don't know, just an idea. You will find out one day what is the cause. Just drive the hell out of it. But put on a cradle to catch the drive shaft when it breaks, I'm not being a smart ass I swear.
We own a 2004 Chevy 10' box truck, it makes a metal squeak high pitched whine in first gear only. It's a chevy thing, it started at about 60k and they said the tranny was toast. That was 3 years ago and the truck has 145k now, still makes the noise, still drives fine. It's a pinion bearing for the first gear and the noise echos off the hollow drive shaft so it seems the noise comes from the driveline, but it's the tranny.
Let us know what the cause is.
