Jeep Wrangler X Squeaking like crazy!


I recently purchased a used 2007 Jeep Wrangler X with only 14k miles on it in great condition. This week Ive noticed a squeaking noise that sounds like its coming from the back left of the jeep. It doesnt start until you've been driving at least 15 minutes, but then the longer you drive, the louder & more often it happens. Doesnt seem to be related to turning, hitting bumps or anything consistent.

Its been suggested that it may be a Hub Bearing... unfortunately I know nothing about Jeeps as this is my first one. If that is the case, how big of a deal is this repair ?

Not sure bout the hub bearings, but I get a regular squeak from the swaybar bushes and give a squirt of WD or similar (spray lube) once a month or so to stop the squeak. Have another squeak in the drivers seat I havent found yet..

Do you use your e-brake? Could be hung up, or check the caliper and rotor. You might be able to jack up the rear and hand turn the wheels?? Might give you an indication....

Dealership said it was the hub bearings, I picked it up today and the squeak is still there and worse! You have to drive for at least 10 min. before it starts & the longer you drive, the louder & more frequent it gets.
