Loud chriping

So I have had a loud chirp coming from underneath my 87 GW. I though it was speedo cable so I disconnected...still there.

then I put it in 4x4 and the noise was still there but a different pitch, so I removed the front driveshaft. Now its gone...

What in the drive shaft would cause this noise? Is it the u-joint, or the cardan joint near the transfer case, or is it the transfer case?

Should I take it to a shop and have it totally rebuilt?

Thanks for the help...

A Ujoint can do it

To me it's more like an oscillating squeak than a chirp though.

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

It's the double cardan. I usually have a shop rebuild mine but if you have a big bench vise or small press you can do them at home with the right parts. I'd replace the front ujoint as well while you have it out.
