    Since it appears to occur only on turns my next step would be to raise the front end on jack stands, spin tires and look for loose suspension parts. Eliminate the brakes, shocks or bearings from the mix of possible variables.

    Stay outta mud dude. Creates more problems than you could ever imagine.
    Good to see you back in the forum.

    Better job, more cash = more jeep stuff.

    Is it a squeak or several squeaks like from a mouse or 1 long continuous high pitch hum through the whole turn. Have you been into those axles and hubs yet, or is everything untouched like it came from the factory. Check your lugs and make sure they are tight. I hate squeaks. Some you just can't get rid of.

    if you have been playing in mud lately i would guess something stuck in the area like a stick, rock or clay mud clump full of grit and when ya turn it rubs. If it only does it when ya turn the wheel. Like Peter said a squeak will drive ya nuts. And Bob is right, mud is fun but its the devil! lol It will ruin your seals and bearings and such.

    Yo Billy. Maybe a mud issue. Lol. Sorry Bro. Gotta bust you on this one. Mud in your balls (joints) will create squeaks. If the squeaks are happening in turns and on bumps. Then it could definitely be your balls. Balls Joints that is. But it could be another issue too.

    So let me get this right. You were trying to clean the mud off your ball (joints) and your zipper got stuck. Ummm. Now that's a problem. Do didn't get your ball (joints) caught in it did ya? That may be a post for another thread.

    Does any one have experience with their ball (joints) caught up in the zipper?
