got a problem

when i turn my wheels all the way one way or the other, there is a loud popping, jurking, grinding coming from my front right. lifted the front and the wheel has no play in it, but my axle seal has broke on that side, and if you move the wheel little at a time you can hear a noise coming from the hub. the jurking is like something is binding or catching somewhere. the noise is only from the right and thats the side the seal is broke. since this has started i now get DW, and that tire has worn out twice as fast as any others. the DW only happens when turning left at around 40-50mph. anyone have any idea.

I would suspect the axle u-joints could be contributing to the binding/catching--I'm on my 3rd jeep (CJ, XJ, & TJ), and have had to replace the axle ujoints in the XJ/TJ due to that same kind of noise.

If your turning left at 40-50mph I'm surprised you haven't tipped over yet.. LOL
I'm assuming you mean left hand turns and also at that speed going down the road.

My first choice would be more then likely the Hub Assembly / Bearings. Jack the front off the ground and grasp the tire at top & bottom and rock back & forth, while watch the Hub area to see if there's excessive play.

To check U-Joint grasp the axle shaft at the joint to see if there's play either rotatational or back & forth.

I'm willing to bet it's a Hub Assembly though.

^ These. Check u-joint and unit bearing. The outer "seal" on a stock axle shaft of the D30/Rubi D44 is a joke. Only meant to keep rocks out, not moisture/mud/dust etc. None of the aftermarket have a seal on them.

Are you certain that's not just from the inside sidewalls of your front tires rubbing on the control arms? If it is, there is a quick 5 minute ten-cent fix for that.

Alloy carries an Outer seal that most people run and has a grease/xerk fitting to keep lubed.

If you turn full lock, there's no tire marks or rub marks on the control arms????
If not then look at what was stated to determine the issue then.

What about between the outside of tires and the fenderwells? Like full passenger turn and rear of passenger fenderwells?

OK, so have you checked the info that we gave about the Hub Assembly or U-Joint????

One other possibility might be the Front Trackbar as well, check physically with wrench that it's tight.
