Question???

I have a 99 tj only bout 40k on it, however as of recently after lets say 25 mile trip, when i turn it makes a strange noise, like something rubbing against something not quite sure, but its strange cause it only occurs after a 45 min dr or so, any thoughts?

"when i turn it makes a strange noise, like something rubbing against something not quite sure"

Is it when you turn at all? Is it a full turn? Left vs. right? Popping vs. squeeling? Go away with acceleration or makes it worse?

Got any other details?

2x ^ Is there any chance of it happening before that too but you just dont listen for it or make a full enough turn or what?

it happens when i make 90 degree turns, left or right, goes away after turn is completed and i would say squeling the only thing i find really strange is like i said it only happens after 30-45 drive, but around town no worries, but it a very noticeable sound so when it comes i for sure hear it and the ride is a bit rougher. hope that helps.

Check your lower control arms and the inside of ur tires for rubbing, other than that, maybe its the power steering belt?

Could be a hub assembly,u-joint,belt,control arm bushing,ect it could be a number of thing from the disciption we have.If you could pin point it a little closer as to the area were the noise is comeing from i.e. engine compartment,cab,under body,front wheel area,?????
