Read End Clunk when turning left

I am experiencing a clunk coming from the left rear wheel area when I make a left turn. It started only when accelerating moderately hard like when turning left to go up a hill but has quickly progressed into a more severe noise and clunk whenever turning left.
I've had a few friends look at it and I think we've ruled out a suspension problem, there doesn't appear to be anything loose or broken there..
I've also searched on a couple forums but can't find anything with my exact problem.
This one looks the most similar to what I have going on, but I haven't been able to take it apart to look inside yet and funds are short so I don't want to do anything until I'm relatively sure of what the problem is

Theres a couple other posts I've found that are similar but not exactly what is happening with my jeep

Rear end clunk...2001 XJ -

Greasing the slip joint on 97+ XJ's(Write-up) -

I've also read people have had similar problems and it was caused by their brakes sticking. I'm hesitant to check that myself to go check that myself because I live in a basement suite and have to park on the road. The last time I did a brake job on the side of the road one of my asshole neighbours called bylaw and they came and gave me a ticket.

Any insight would be awesome so when I get it to my buddies shop I at least have an idea of what needs to get done
