PLEASE HELP! 05 WK 3.7L Mystery sound!

Hey everyone. First post on the forum. I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo and today I noticed a sound in the front end (it's been really quiet running this far). When I let off the gas around 15 mph I hear a clunking/moaning sound coming from the front end. When it slows down further it turns into a sticky/squeaking sound. I've noticed it coming from the passenger side while passing cars in a parking lot when the sound bounces off of them. It's at 99,000 miles now. No suspension/transmission mods. Has anyone else had this problem?!

Ball joints?

Thanks for your quick response! I'll check those things this weekend when I'm off. But what is a CV?

Signs of Failure
Signs of failure for CV joints and axles including a metallic, clicking noise that is heard whenever the vehicle is turning or accelerating. This usually indicates that dirt and grime have gotten inside the CV joint bearings, which have leaked the lubrication fluid used in the joint. It is important to regularly check the CV boots for signs of decay and wear.

I'd start with those things. Get it up in the air and move the tire around and see if you can get the noise to happen.

If the boot or torn or grease is visible around the CV joints thats likely your culprit.

WOrn bushings can cause squeaking also. PBlaster will make them swell and may help in the short term. Blast all your bushings with that and see if that fixes it.

Shocks wear out and squeak, my truck sounded terrible before replacing those.
