Squeaking when turning at slow speeds

I have a 98 XJ and i have an annoying problem and don't know what's causing this squeaking noise to occur when I'm turning out of my driveway and stuff like that. Anyone else have this problem?

Possibly bad U-joints on the front axles, they only flex close to their max when you have the wheels turned a lot, and the wheels are only turned a lot when you're moving slow.
