    Default 2001 Chevy S10 Squeaking After Minor Accident

    Hey everyone I'm new here but I really like alot of the questions answered. I have one of my own. I was involved in an accident in my 2001 Chevy S10 LS, thankfully I was able to not hit anyone else and managed to keep my damage to a minimum. I have come to terms with the fact I will need a new bed, and a new rim since I cracked one, not that big a deal I know. What my problem is now, when I drive it it drives fine but I am getting a squeaking sound when I accelerate and is usually made worse by hitting the brakes. I didn't damage my actual tires thankfully, but I don't know if I may have hurt my alignment and/or frame. Has anyone had this kind of experience with an S10? I know the last thing I want is to cause more damage to my baby, I mean truck. It hurts when I hear this and I want to figure out what's wrong with it ASAP because I have had it checked by a mechanic and gotten the okay with my brakes and what not.... could it be my cracked rim? Or possibly my alignment off? I already brought it in and got it checked out, no problems, but when it drives it definately doesn't feel the same. ANY help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Alot!

    Where exactly do you hear the squeeking? Have a friend stand outside and listen as you drive past slowly.
