CV Axle?

So on the way home today I noticed some exceptional squeaking when driving. I already had plans to replace the serpentine belt because it has been chirping in the cooler mornings here and getting quiet after warming up...typical belt issues.....

But this one is different. This is a rotational squeak as I start rolling and more noticeable when I am backing up and turning but seems to persist even when going straight. Then it just goes away and doesn't do it for a while.

I replaced some cv axles in the past and I was thinking they were doing the same thing. Any similar experience with this?

Try rolling and when it makes the noise lightly press the brake enough to slow you but not stop the truck and see if it's still there or if it goes away.

Well did it this am but not the whole evening. So wtf?! Lol. It was a very loud rotational squeak and especially noticeable backin up into a parking spot. Was subtle but after work the whole way home it was fine. Fine parkin it twice backin in w nothin. Guess if it doesnt all weekend i might as well cancel my appt at the dealer. They cant repeat it they wont fix anything.

I don't know. It doesn't kick at all like a u joint usually does and it hasn't done it for three days so if it does it again I will check.
