Just noticed it yesterday, a very noisy squeak coming from somewhere underneath, probably around the driveline. When in 1st 2nd and 3rd it goes sqeak....sqeak......sqeak, getting faster and louder the faster you go. When changing gears it dissapears and it appears only under load - so if rolling in gear there is no noise. Any ideas???????

Justin,
Sounds like a dry ( stuffed) uni joint.
Cheers Steve

Are you able to do normal mechanical work? if not you will need to get your mechanic to do it. Joints are about $50 each, i advise to do both joints while its off if they have done similar amounts of work.

Justin,
If your 80 Series is a GXL, costant 4WD do all four uni joints.
I will be doing mine soon as I have some big trips comming up.

Roachie,
May be there is a Nissan under the Cruiser that is making the squeak.

Roachie,
The squeeky wheel makes the most noise and requires the extra attention of special CRUISER OIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You blokes out number me, so I'll crawl back in my hole and disappear.
