    Check your u-joints, I had the same problem with my 99 yukon and at low speeds I could hear it but at highway speeds it seemed to go away. I replaced the rear ones first and it wasn't the problem, I then did the fronts and it went away. I recommend not getting the cheap "autozone" one's, I went that route and they lasted about 6 months. Hope this helps.

    I had a 99 silverado and it was the u-joints too. It was the drive shaft from the trans to the rear end and not the 4x4 drive shaft. I had two for some reason.
