    I have a 2009 Tacoma 4wd with 85k miles on it.
    I know it's not much to go off of without being able to hear the sound. But when I accelerate from a stop I start hearing the squeak and sometimes a shudder. I haven't heard this noise at greater than 40mph either. I'm wondering if it has to do with the torque converter

    I'd try greasing the U joints first. It was probably never done.

    There are a total of 5, 3 on the rear shaft at each joint and 2 on the front inside each joint.

    Heres what I found. Here are a pair of my U joints I found, and the carrier bearing...
