    New guy here. My wife just told me that her 1997 runner is making a noise. When I run it to about 15 to 25 miles it's starts to squeek. I lifted it and put in driver and it sounds like it's coming from the driver shaft but nothing looks loose. Any advise.

    Check your sway bar bushings and sway bar link bushings front and rear. Probably from there. Did you do UCAs with the lift? Gotta make sure those bushings are greased up before pressing in or they'll squeak too.

    Got it. I think I might have figured it out. I pumped some Greese into the yokes and it seems like it fixed the problem. Drove it and no more squeek. Thanks again for info I'll continue to monitor.
