Somethings Sqweaking and Grinding

Whew, so got in the Jeep today and now everytime I accelerate from a stop something is squeling. Sounds like a loose belt but it's coming from the hubs. Too bad I'm 2 hours from home and have to drive home tomorrow to check it out.

So let's keep it light and funny? What do you guys think it could be?

I'm going with two fighting squirrels hibernating inside my drums.

Just went out and drove it again, took two videos but I don't want to post them and get the "Ohhhh man I remember my first time driving stick comments" lol. Still, the ebrake is definitely down, but maybe I botched something up on the drum swap. My guess is those friggen e-brake springs have gone to shit finally.

You can see on this one what I'm talking about. Those yellow springs have gone to dumps on both my wheels, but I can't find a replacement for them.

Lmao... True story!! Last time I heard a squealing noise I got in my jeep from the house to head down to the 4wheel parts store which btw is like a good 30 to 45 minute drive, while walking to my jeep I noticed my dog which is my boxer named TJ, was around my jeep but didn't think nothing of it at the time so as I was driving I kept hearing a thump under my jeep and squealing, I thought oh crap I was going to the store to look at buying some cool things for my jeep but now I might have to get replacement parts for whatever just broke. Then I started thinking what the heck could it be because the sound wasn't consistent, I pull up at the 4wheel parts store and I had already called my buddy a few minutes before who is the manager there, he was waiting for me as soon as I pulled up, I got out of my jeep and low and behold a freaking squirrel jumps down from my jeep and darts across the parking lot! My buddy looked at me and said hey I fixed it that will be $500, can you believe that little guy road the whole way! He was riding inside my skid plate, you know that sucker was hot!!! Lol

for a second I thought that story was going to end with you pulling a Chevy Chase and killing your dog.

You aren't the only one.... Glad it was a fluffy tailed rat instead...

Check to make sure you don't have a stuck caliper too...

Lmao... Oh no I love my boxer TJ to much, I would never do something so dumb! He's my jeep partner in crime. Usually goes with me everywhere but not that time because he couldn't come in the store!!
