Driveline Chirping/squeak

Het guys, Im having kind of an annoying issue with what seems to be something in the drivetrain, wheels or brakes. Truck is lifted 6 inches and what happens is that after i have moved the truck about a mile in the morning i get a chirping/ squeaking sound from under the truck that corresponds with how fast the truck is moving, Pushing the brakes does not change the sound so I kind of want to rule them out, I've had two local mechanics look at it because I thought it would be a rear u joint, they said the u joints look fine.

Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? almost seems like it happens once a bearing gets warmed up, carrier bearing maybe? front drive shaft?

any help is appreciated.

Maybe the carrier bearing..... Does it need a spacer after lifting?

Not sure how to correctly check it.
Perhaps you could lube it up with some spray oil and then see if the chirping goes away and if it does ....... Then change the carrier bearing as the oil will not last very long.
Just thinking out loud.!!!

I did try that recently, however it is hard to judge since it seems it takes the chirping awhile to start in the first place

Tensioner pulley? i just recently had one replaced due to a squeak under the hood. Check all pulleys to make sure there isn't any movement.

The first mechanic pulled everything off and said it looked good, I have not ruled out wheel bearing. Is there a way I could check that? I hate to go replacing a bunch of things if it's not needed.
