trailerking *update*

the squeal was caused by the centering ball in the cardan joint on the front driveshaft, the so called 'angry sparrows".

the vibration was caused by one of the u-joints on the rear driveshaft. replaced both u-joints on the rear driveshaft at work today and my jeep is completely vibration free now. i plan on tackling the front driveshaft this weekend at home. bought all 5 u-joints and centering ball rebuild kit at my local parts house for right around $100 bucks.

i posted this update not because anyone gives a crap. i posted because i'm a drunken, vodka swilling buffoon who saved a couple hundred $$ fixing my own jeep thanks to this fine forum. cheers

new vibration and rear wheel squeal

i have a 1999 sahara 4.0/5spd w/a 3" lift and 33's. yesterday on the way home from work the jeep developed a moderate vibration from around 25mph up. i got home and did a visual check of the suspension and driveline and all seemed ok besides a couple of the seals that hold grease in the rear u joint were broken or missing. when driving slowly through my neighborhood a little later i also noticed that the rear p/s wheel has started to squeal when making a left turn but stops when going straight.

anyone have any ideas? could the two problems be related? i've read tons of posts on here but i could'nt fing anything similar this.
