Steering Problem...

i have a 98 ZJ, and sometimes when i turn the steering wheel all the way, the tires rub on the ground wrong and squel. Any suggestions on what it could be? ive had the transfer case fluid changed and it only made it better for a day or so...

Ok something smells fishy about that question..

If your for real, explain your question a little better please.

If you are moving and the wheels "hop" when turning.. then it could be your transfer case or your front cv joints.

and if its not hopping and the transfer case is good... then maybe the "squeeling" you hear is from your powersteering pump. look into it....

its hard to explain, but sometimes the steering wheel gets real hard to turn, like when backing out of my driveway, or when im making a turn around. ive also had the power steering fluid changed and it helped for a little bit but then the problem comes back again
