I'm not positive if it comes from mostly the outside because it's load enough where I can't tell. Although this could be wrong but it might happen a little more while turning right. Then again this could because that would make me closer to the outside wheel therefore I can hear it more.

Honestly you are the first person I have ever seen on here cut it off. We follow some one else because it works well and is SAFE! Cutting of the pinch weld ruins the integrity. If it wasn't necessary then it wouldn't be there right? There is no need to be rude to other members here (especially ones with a lot of experience in not only WK's but also other Jeeps) because we are trying to help you be safe. We are a community of Jeep loving people and we take care of our people. So like I stated we are saying things to you for safety purposes. Not to disrespect you or bash on you.

Well it is common for WK folks with a lift to experience the traction control/btc (brake throttle control) kick in during tight turns especially with any speed. The computer senses the outside tire's excessive spin, relative to the inside tire, as just that - tire spin. So the btc kicks in on the outside wheel. This sounds like abs and a screeching rattle from the backing plate of the wheel hub/rotor assembly.

Dude, don't get your panties in a bunch when we all tried to help you. There's some guys on here that you can learn a thing or two from and your nemesis is one of them.

Learn a thing or two and make some friends on here like i did.

Chayden -- The easy test is to hold down your ESP button and turn traction control off. I give it a 50/50 chance of going away without seeing your Jeep. Whatever you do, don't listen to Baity, even if it doesn't go away with the TC turned off.

Try this...I did and it helped a little. Take some white chalk dust and lightly cover the places you think it rubs (for me the pinch weld area) and just drive in a parking lot slowly (DRY OUT). You will see the tire rub marks.

is it possible that it's the bolt from one of the UCA's?

If it was it wouldn't be intermittent. The relationship between the tire shoulder lugs and that bolt is constant. As the wheel/tire moves up/down in travel so does the spindle/ball joint/nut/control arm. As well, the nut is more or less in the center of the wheel so that plane never changes.

In other words, the tire either clears the bolt or it doesn't - regardless of any factor other than fitment.
