There is a squeal when I turn a corner,it doesn't matter which direction. also doesn't matter the or slow..
I was thinking hubs..but I asked my dad who is a little more of a mechanic than me and he said it doesn't sound like hubs to him..also said it would be highly unlikely that both would go at the same time.

Background on my jeep,95 i6 5 speed
Brake pads are less than a year old.
Rotors are not new,calipers are new.
lines are all new front and back.
the frame from the trac bar forward is new.
power steering pump is new.
also with the jeep in the air,when i turn the tires by hand..there is it doesn't want to turn.also when i turn it theres a noise like metal to metal and dirt in it..doesn't turn freely..but there is no play when I shake the tires...hands up/down or forward/backwards.
This has got me stumped,could really use you guys help
Thanks in advance.

Have you greased the ball joints and tie rod ends?

Have you checked hub bearings. With the tire in the air check it sisde to side and up and down.

if it's doing the squealing when you turn either direction, it sounds like air in the power steering system...i saw the pump was new....did you bleed the air out after installing the pump?

Thanks for the replies
I have checked the "play" in the tire by trying to shake it and there is none.
I did bleed the air out but will try it again just to make sure.
And I'm getting ready to grease everything now lol.
