Likely a bad axle u-joint, but it could also be bad spider gears. Oh, also make sure your tire is not simply rubbing on your lower control arm.

Thanks. I did lift front of the Jeep, turned wheel all the way to the left and moved the wheel forward and backward and did not hear any noise. I also tried to move axle shaft and ujoint didn't move at all.

Can it still be ujoint?

Sounds like the heatshield or dust cover behind the caliper
Maybe loose or bent or a small rock under it

Also sounds like tire edge may be rubbing control arm so you may need a washer or two under the turn stop bolt

Thanks. I'll check it out today when I get home. It makes noises only when I make left turn, could it still be stop bolt?

And completely random question, but just by looking at it, is that 2" lift? or more or less? :) and does tires appear to be stock size or slightly bigger?
