squeak on reverse

I have a 98 S-10 ZR2, with automatic trans. I commute about 80 miles a
day, and try not to drive much, so it currently gets used about once a
week, but I always make sure it gets driven at least 15-20 miles whwn
out, so at least it gets fully warm when used.
Anyway, lately I have noticed that when I back up, I get a squeak squeak
sound that is proportional to wheel speed, i.e. when I speed up, it
squeaks faster. It also seems that sometimes in reverse, the truck
doesnt exactly want to go as well as it used to. MPG is the same as
usual, forward power seems right. Everything looks OK (brakes do squeal
in the rear), although I havent checked the level of diff oil in a
while. I dont knwo what it could be, it almost sounds like if I was
compressing and decompressing the suspension, but of course I am not,
just driving in reverse. Any help or suggestions would be really
appreciated. Thanks very much,
possibly the u-joints...or the rear brakes....
most likely the brakes.
