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.

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

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.
