Noise from rear end

Dont you love hearing new noises that dont sound good driving your jeep. Well i have one that i cant figure out its when i am turning. usually when i am starting off and then make a turn it happen it sound like something is binding or something. i thought it was my swaybar moving side to side in the bushing but that wasn't it. i was thinking it is my rear end going out. I have a 4 in lift on it with 33's so it could be from the rear end but idk it could also be from a Suspension part. If you have anything it possibly could be or if you had maybe something like this and what you did would be great.

Broke cut back on the beans the noise will go away .

Limited slip will give power to the opposite side tire that is not spinning.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

mines a 99 with around 115k. one of my seals were leaking about a year ago or less and i got that fixed and changed the lube. but ive been thinking about opening it up and taking a look inside and changing it just to check it out because idk what else it could really be.

drove it to work about 60 miles round trip. it never made the noise once. guess the valvoline rear end grease did the trick!

How about this variation on the topic. (1999 SE 4 cyl 5 speed 120K miles.)

My rear end has started grinding, but only when I have my foot on the throttle. When I lift my foot up the noise goes away. It doesn't matter what gear or speed.

It sounds like the axle bearings. It can't be the wheel bearings because it goes away when I take my foot off the pedal. I haven't checked the fluid yet but there are no leaks.

It's a horrendous noise!

Any ideas?

I just put a 2" BB kit on mine and noticed the rear axle is not centered and when I'm wheeling I hear a poping noise from the rear. Not sure if it's the control arms rubbing or if it's stress on the U-joint. Is this similar to the noise you have? If so let me know what you diagnose on yours.
