Squeaking/Squealing sound

Lately I have been hearing this noise that sounds like a squeaking mattress (er er er er er). So far I have only been able to determine that it starts after long run times after I get off the freeway. I hear it most as I am coasting to a stop but I can't tell if that is just because the motor drowns it out under acceleration. Any Ideas?

Does the squeak sound like it's coming from the back of the truck? My carrier bearing makes that squeak occasionally, I hit it with some spray lube and it's quiet for a couple more months. I know, I really should replace it.

It sounds more like it is coming from under hood. Where or what is the carrier bearing?

Not the same as mine bed squeak. The carrier bearing is on the rear driveshaft.

Still Can't Pinpoint

So I still haven't been able to pippoint the squeak. But now it seems that I need to run her on the freeway for a while. After I get off the freeway it seems that the truck will squeak the worst around 30 - 40 mph wile coasting or breaking. Then the sound dies out below 30.

It's driving me nuts and ford can't seem to troubleshoot it either.
