I bet it's your tires rubbing on the lower control arms. Mine does it too

Check to ensure your trackbar is nice and tight on the axle end. Have someone turn the wheel lock to lock while you watch the trackbar up front.

Also, a really bad ujoint up front can sometimes cause some pretty awful noises.

There should be visible movement in the joint that connects the trackbar to the axle if it's loose\bad. Just follow what I wrote above.
