Customer Question

I have a 2001 suburban 1500 2wd. When accelerating from a stop I hear a squeak that initially sounded like it was coming from the rear tires. The squeak had that rhythm to it that you would expect from a rotating tire. However if i take my foot off of
the accelerator and coast the squeak goes away completely. if i reengage the accelerator it starts again until i reach a fast enough speed that the sound can't be heard. Could it be something with the drive shaft?
