Another squeak thread

2005 LJ with 33k on it

Went to the Badlands and ended up in some mud. Developed this awful squeak soon after. Rotational, brakes don't effect it. It's intermittent but with no real pattern. Some days it'll squeak like crazy every inch of the way, other days it will start quiet and squeak after a few miles, etc.

My shop had it for a week, replaced a loose front right u-joint and thought it was good. 15 blocks from the shop the squeak fired right back up. According to them they can't diagnose it because once it's on a lift, no squeak. Everything is tight and no apparent leaks. I enjoy working on the Jeep, but definitely still learning.

Any guidance is appreciated.

If you did the right U-joint, what about the left?....
Also, have you tried removing front drive shaft? Could be the centering ball/cv joint as the shaft still spins even in 2wd

^^^X2. First thing I would do is remove all four wheels and check for a rock/debris caught between backing plates and rotors or inside brake drums. Then as Shark mentioned, unbolt the front of the front ds and tie it up while you drive it. If it goes away, you know it's a ds joint.
