ZJ Squeak - U-joint or bearing?

I'm trying to chase down a newly developed squeak in my jeep. It's a 96 Grand Cherokee.

'hard to tell at that slow speed...but my guess is a u-joint or something in the brakes like a low pad sensor or maybe even a rock stuck up in there.

Hm. Maybe I'll have to pull the pads off the breaks and check. I did go through a small mud pit the other day.

It only makes the squeaking at lower speeds.
