I just bought a 89 xj, with a 4.5" skyjacker lift already installed... i admit I am new to this, and new to building a project. I am mechanically inclined but not even close to a mechanic. That being said, i have a metallic grinding sound coming from the front drivers side, but only when i am rolling slow and turning right. I have never had a vehicle with a lift so I don't know what to look for if it were related to that. At first I thought it would be the brakes, but wouldn't it do it all the time? I just went out to walk next to it as my wife drove and it didn't do it at all, it did just rain and is cooler than it has been the last few days. It is without a doubt metal on metal and sounds like it matches the revolutions of the wheels.

Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind
Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it
