So here is a new one for all of you. 1990 YJ 4.2, 4" lift, transfer case drop, running 33's.
I have this grinding/rubbing/squeel sound every once in a while. Can't tell where it is coming even with doors and top off. Sounds like it is coming from the left rear wheel. Now this is the part that really bugs me, it happens if I get a bump from the right side, even when going straight and the latest was when I backed up on a hill and turned the wheels to the right.
I checked the play on the rear axles (thinking maybe moving outward and cocking on the brake shoes) Nope very little almost none at all.
Checked brakes and rolled them up actually about 10 clicks.
Parking break does not seem to be hanging up.
Front bearings are tight and have no movement.
I have your typical creeking( bushings) but this happens at highway speeds even as low as 5 mph.
It actually sounds like the brakes almost like they are rubbing in the drum. It does not go away when I apply the brakes. It goes away on its own right after the loud squeel.
Any ideas would be great.
