2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo V8. 141,000 miles.
I'm getting a noise in the steering column on turns at low speed. Can
hear it in the mornings backing up/turning out of the garage. It
happens only during turns. I can describe it as a rubbing noise,
maybe a squeal. Kind of like rubber against metal. Doesn't sound or
feel like anything grinding or catching or getting ready to break. Any
When precisely "during turns"? Do you hear it while you are turning the
wheel? If so, it could be your steering column bearings giving up the
ghost. Go into a turn, like in a parking lot, and hold the wheel
steady, continuing to turn while going forward. If you still hear it,
this eliminates the steering column. It could then be brakes, wheel
bearings, universal joints, almost anything connected with the front
drive and steering.

Yes, it whines while turning the wheel. I'm thinking it's the steering
column bearings. It's my wife's vehicle, I'll go drive it again just
I don't imagine steering column bearings are fun for a backyard
Something from this list?
I would use the squeal instead of TSB's wording. Mine had squeal and
tick, TSB's 1900301a, 1900502 and 1900303 have been applied. The tick
sound went away, squel is randomly still there. To less extend after
1900502 was applied.
