Actually, now that I think of it, toward the end, it did really squeak, and it was only sometimes... Definitely check that pulley....00 Chevy Tahoe LT, 5.3 4x4

That I don't know... But the power steering is working great and not having any problems. Also my brakes are working fine just don't have ABS when I slam on the brakes.

Squeaking is now getting worse because I'm driving the truck every day again will be checking it out either Monday or during the week. Wish I could this weekend but I'm away for the weekend once again.

Well spent about an hour maybe two replacing the belt tensioner pulley that was squeaking. Checked all other pulleys they were smooth and rotated easily (except for the crank shaft for obvious reasons). Took a while because I took lots of pics under the hood and inspected around to make sure all is good.
Sadly I was unable to replace the rusty factory idler pulley because it has a lock nut of the back I couldn't get off. Also may need a new serpentine belt soon the one on there is reaching its end, has slight cracks between the cogs and barely able to see any of the print on the belt.
Here's the pics:
pulley on the truck was same one it was replaced with from autozone
These are suppose to be in the beginning

That lock washer is the exact same thing that they use to hold the rotors in place during assembly. You just need to grab one of the fins with a pair of side cutters and twist. It should come right off. They are only there for ease of assembly at the factory. If you do replace it make sure the new one looks exactly the same. I bought one from autozone and it would not work, the fins on the back rubbed. I had to buy an exact replacement at o'reillys

@Pikey it seems it really was only the tensioner pulley because the squeaking has stopped there is a slight quiet squeaking at random times but not sure if its the idler because the pulley's bearing felt factory smooth, smoother than the replacement even. I think the squeak is just the new pulleys bearings getting used to movement and such.
