Terrible Grinding Noise When Turning

I have a 1993 YJ which I recently took off roading. Now whenever I turn a very sharp left, especially into an incline, the jeep makes a terrible grinding noise from underneath the car. Car has to be going at least 5 MPH. Any ideas? I think it might be a joint, but I am not sure. Thanks.

Check the cv joints right behind the wheel

There is no "I" in jeep. Just a lot of money.

My 89 did that my grinding was coming from the cuplink in the front axle if i took off the the box that engages the four wheel drive off the axles reach in and slide the cuplink back over where it should be when in 2wd put it to gather it didnt do it engaged the 4wd then disengaged it the grinding would start again the cuplink would only slide over enough to disengage the four wd not enough to clear the axle it slides away from so it would grind on accelatration and while turning to the left

CV Joint sounds like a good possibility, sound comes from right front area and only happens when turning left, never right.

Then it could just be the one side that it is bad. I know I had my pass go bad, but my driver side was solid. Just jack up the whole front end and have someone rotate one tire and take off the other. And watch the joint, if there is excessive slop its a bad cv join and it needs replaced.

For starters guys, it's not a CV joint, it's a u-joint. OP, rather than diagnose from the inside, crawl under and have a look. The other posts are probably right, the front u-joint(s) are bad, dried out. Replace them yourself and have a project. While you are down there (get used to being there), look over other things like wiggling drive shaft ends to check for play, look for leaks, etc.
