Need help plz! Cant get rid of squeek

I have a 2002 wrangler X 5 speed inline 6 4.0. It's been about 2 weeks now, my jeep has been squeaking when I'm driving. But when I'm idling the squeak dosent happen. Only when I move, any idea what this could be? It's driving me crazy! (It's not brake pad warn indicators)

Trying checking ur four wheel drive bracket underneath. Put some grease on it but first grab it and try shaking it a little or moving it around and see if it is that. I had the same problem with mine then started graving stuff and shaking it then found that was the problem. Hope this helps

Mine did this about 3 or 4 years ago ('04 TJ with 165K on it now) it was u-joints.

I would agree, certainly sounds like u-joints

Send a message via AIM to MudTJ
Check the U joints/Centering Ball in the front driveshaft assembly. This is where the noise is most likely coming from:


You can try and spray some WD-40 or equivalent in it to see if the noise goes away but will most likely need to be replaced.

Could a bad pinion bearing cause this noise
