Awful squeaking noise..

Hey guys, the wj is making a pretty loud and annoying squeak. Its only while driving, whenever i am stopped it does not make the noise. It sounds like its coming from the front, almost like a belt squeal but wouldnt that be all the time. But i am not 100% sure where the noise is from. I know i need to replace an axle seal on the driver side rear. Is that the culprit? Driveshaft related? Brakes? I guess i just need a place to start. Thanks for your time. Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING

yeah, a belt noise would make it regardless of moving or not. Could be brakes. Take note of when it does it. Does it go away if you lightly apply the brake pedal? Turning to one side, etc?

It gets a little more quiet while slowing down

well the easiest way to eliminate if it's coming from a belt or accessory is to pull the belt and run it, see if the noise goes away.
