Strange noise?

Any ideas on a grinding/vibration noise from left front rear while going really slow and slightly turning left. I'm know its not the QD because I always get that groan. It seem to only happen when I'm at a light before I press the go pedal. No noise at high speeds. I can't tell what it is. Maybe axle?

I'm trying to upload a video of my front drive shaft. Hopefully this works. Also a picture of the rear, which seemed to have a weight on it at one point. Any input??

Dies your wj have the cv joint style drive shafts? Looks like a rubber boot at the transfer case. If so, that's your vibration issue. 6" of lift is definitely gonna make that thing vibrate.

No this is the front. I'm pretty sure I've been told this is the good one. It's the double cardigan. I'm hoping the little bit of vibes at like 45-50 is from the rear( the picture with the weight thrown off). As for the video I was just checking around to see if anything was loose and I noticed this play in the front DS.. I'm not really sure where the wee bit of grinding is from. I lifted the front end and rocked my wheels back and forth and they seem tight so I don't think it is wheel berings. It just seems to make the noise at idol speed just after taking foot off the brake to go forward and I've noticed it so far only while turning left. No noise at high speeds.
