Chriping sound

Can anyone help me diagnose this sound. Has been driving me crazy for a couple of weeks now. Whenever I turn right I get a loud chirping sound coming from the front right tire area. I also get a more quite chirp from the same area when turning left. This only happens during turns and gets worse with the severity of the turn. Braking does not affect the sound. I have re greased all zerk fitting but can't seem to find the source of the noise.

Yep that sounds like a bad u-joint. A great (stronger/more durable replacement) is a Spicer 5-760x.

I'll give it a shot. Should I just replace both sides while I'm at it?

When one side is bad, the other side can't be far behind.

I had this problem and it was driving me crazy. It was a loud chirping up front after hitting a bump. It got more noticeable as time went on... and the louder it got, the crazier it made me. I could turn the radio up, but I knew it was still there.
I read all the posts about everything from bad bearings, driveshafts, shocks, bushings, etc.. basically anything in the front of the Jeep that was going to be expensive. I could reproduce the problem by giving the front tires a good kick so I was hoping it may just be something loose in the front suspension/drive. Got my tools and planned on spending hours looking around and tightening any bolt I could find.
I saw no sign of any slack in any bushing, bolt or connection. Cables, pipes and tubes all routed fine from what I could see. Nothing. I was pissed that I was going to need to bring this is to the shop for a little noise. I gave the wheel another good kick while I was under the Jeep and I realized it was coming from up top somewhere. I opened the hood and looked around up there. Another kick and no noise. !!??. I closed the hood and latched it. Kicked again and the sound was back.

I put some oil on the small piece of rubber that the hood rests on next to the latches and the sound is gone. It has not returned.
