I have just recently noticed a noise coming from my passeger side front hub of my 85 cj7. The sound is a squeal that gets quicker with each revoultion of the tire. It only happens when I'm in 4wd. When I'm not in 4wd and I've left the hubs locked it is more of a thud and when the they aren't locked there is no sound at all. I just put superwinch hubs on this summer, so I know this shouldn't be the cause of the problem. If anyone could help me out w/ the problem it would be appreciated! thanks

I'd say look at the u-joint on the front axle shaft, and if that's the culprit, replace both sides cause the other won't be far behind this one

good luck

I've checked the ujoints already and they look fine... any other suggestions?
