Need some help... possible worn u-joint
So I've had a squeaking noise coming from what I believe to be the front end for a while now (like 2-3 years... I know I should've checked it out sooner than now). Thought it wasn't a big deal when I first got the Jeep but I think a u-joint may be going out on me. I can only hear it when I'm going 20 or slower and it doesn't matter if I'm turning or not. It also occurs regardless of whether the clutch is engaged or not. The only thing that I can do to set it off is idle for a bit. It doesn't do it immediately, but after idling for a little bit it'll start. It squeaks in unison with the tires rolling and isn't constant (like squeak, squeak, squeak) and gets faster as I speed up. If anybody has some advice I'd love to hear it! Thanks!
