Grinding on turns
I have a 96 Grand Cherokee and when I'm at a stopand go to turn it grinds. It sounds like it's comming from the rear end but when I replaced the rear axels all the gears looked good no damage to any of them there's no bearing noise I replaced the outer bearing and seals but it's still making that noise and getting worse. I was told that if I drop the front driveline and the noise stops that the problem is the transfer case but I don't want to remove the driveline and the frount axel or transfercase to leak. Can I remove it and not have to worry about fluid loss and will it damage anything else on the jeep?
Good lord run on much? It's possible it's your tcase, dropping your front axle you shouldn't lose much in the way of fluid. Pop it out drive around see if it stops. What size tires are you running (as in are all the same size, if not or they once weren't this could case damage). What do you mean by you changed the rear axles? Full swap, the half shafts? What type of fluid did you use when you refilled the pumpkin?

You can remove the front drive shaft without a problem to check for noise. You do not need the friction modifier if you don't have a limited slip. If you do have a limited slip then it's possible that it's needs a rebuild but you need to figure out where the noise is coming from first.
The rear end is a Dana 44 3.73 and It had a tag on it saying it needed limited slip additive. I have not gotten into the carrier to see if it has the clutch packs or not yet. If I Rember right when it's on stands the tires rotate opposite directions

Ok it's been a while but the one on the right looks like the carrier that I have. My jeep has about 230,000 ish miles and I'm sure it's never been done. I'm going to drop the front driveline and see if that will fix the noise cause when I grab the side closest to the transfer case I can push it up and down and you can hear it shifting (a light clunking) in the transfercase.
It could be eather but I was told that by removing the frount driveshaft that if the grinding stops it's the transfer case if it dosent then it's the rear axel. But I was just making sure that when I remove the frount driveshaft that the frount axel and transfer case won't leak.
