Have you gone offroading in a muddy environment lately? I heard that if you don't clean out the wheels, remnants of mud can cause issues with the wheel innards... ? Just a thought.

Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe when you have the time you should put your jeep on a jack and have a better look at that rear tire...

It only makes these sounds when I'm at a dead stop and turn and take off its doing it when I turn both ways
