Squeaky front wheels help!

Hey everyone so i went wheeling in some Az sand/mud and now i have noise coming from my wheels when they spin brakes have no effect only speed changes the frequency, I think my bearings could have got sand in them i lifted each front tire and spun it and it made the squeak noise. Please advise me on what this could be the wheel has no play in it indicating bearings are still good.

Take tire off and take brake caliper off (2 bolts) then spin the axle. If its still there, its not your brakes. You could have gotten mud into your differential or simply your wheel bearings. Take the fill plug off the front differential. Is the fluid good? No bubbles or milky liquid? Start there and we'll see how it goes.

If it got into your differential you will need to remove the diff cover, remove axle shafts, and clean everything well using spray brake cleaner.

Could also be a case of the "angry sparrows" in your front Driveshaft.

If it is coming from the DS, you need a centering ball kit and three new u joints.
