hi guys, i just bought a 2000 silverado with 124k and i've noticed a suspension noise out of the rear axle area. it does not sound like metal noise almost like a dry rubber sound(creeking). it does this when i take off from a stopped position. does this every time i move the truck. it also makes this sound if you go into reverse. anyone out there have and idea? there are no vibrations when driving the truck on the highway...

A few possibilities:

Check the U-Joints they may be dry, loose, or going bad.

Clean out the rear spring pack with water (high pressure if possible) then blow Graphite into the spring pack (Usually available at auto parts stores, but I've been know to shave a pencil down when I'm out).

Check the torque on the rear spring hangers and the U-bolts (lube the bushings with graphite).

Check the rubber exhaust hangers (again graphite works well to lube the hangers, oil breaks down and deteriorates the rubber).
