Grinding Noise When I Crank Steering Wheel Left Or Right

I have a 1994 Jeep Wrangler YJ
Nothing added or taken away from it.
Never had one problem with it ever.
Have for about 4 months now.
Has been the most reliable car ever.
Little 4 banger.

The only problem is i notice when i want to make sharp turn or U-turn and i crank the steering wheel either left or right i hear thing grinding noise. I m not sure what it is. I looked under the hood to see what it could be but there was nothing. I also made sure my power steering wasnt leaking or anyting and i made sure i had some. Its not a big problem, but its something that i would like to get fixed.

Any suggestions on what i should do?

Any help with be appreciated.

Did you put bigger tires on it? Maybe the PO did. Look in the front wheel wells and frame for rubber scrapes and look at the outer edge of your tire for cuts.

If its only when moving then you need to adjust your steering stops.

Bushing at the steering cilumn needs replaced. Cheap and easy job. Pull the steering shaft from the column. Pull the outer snap ring at the end of the column. Pull the collar at the end of the column. Under the collar there is a bushing. That is what needs replaced.

I've been married so long I don't bother looking
both ways before crossing the road.
