steering pull.

Hey all. has anyone had this before? Two weeks ago i started to hear a squeel on the front passengers wheel. the squeel only occurs when turning either direction. then while the wheel corrects itself from the turn, i can feel a sort of pull/tug in repeition. I thought it could be the new bigger tires settling in? just thought it'd go away now. i've lubricated the wheel too and nothing has changed.

It's likely a bad unit bearing hub or draggy brake piston. I'd remove the caliper and spin the hub on the side towards which the Jeep is pulling to which will likely help confirm if it's the hub or brake.

I no longer have that nut since installing manual hubs years ago but I'm pretty confident that it's a 36mm.
