Growling noise from the rear when turning slowly to right or left. Sometimes it feels like one of the rear wheels are locked and slips during a sharp slow turn.

Also, when turn the steering wheel during sharp slow turns the wheel makes a load groan sound.
Just bought my jeep, has a bering noise from the rear end when i step on the gas
When i let go on high speeds the jeep wiggles in the back end
Moaning noise at 35 mph or higher.
Only when I have the front drive shaft hooked up does it make a almost grinding sort of noise coming from the front differential. Seems to be a common problem. I replaced front left hub assembly. Problem did not go away. Mechanic verified it was the differential. I did not fix. I sold it for the same price I paid for it 2 years earlier. Haha.
