I developed a squeak this weekend in my 94 YJ while trail riding. It only happens in 4wd and it is coming from the drivers side front wheel area. If I am turning to the right the squeak seems to go away and when turning to the left it goes away about 1/2 the time. What should I be looking at to determine the source of my squeak?

Axle shaft u-joint or unit bearing. If it is affected by turning I would think Axle shaft u-joint first.

Lets see what the "Experts" think of my diagnosis.

I agree. If it was a unit bearing, I think he would "feel" it when turning one way or the other.

Simple rule of thumb. Joints squeek. Bearings rumble & grind unless dry. Unit bearings typically don't go dry. They just fail.

So, ding ding ding, Mongo..... you are the man.
