Angry Sparrows

Ok so ive been hearing a chirping noise on and off in my jeep for a long time. it only seems to do it when its cold out and it usually stops once i drive on it for 20 minutes. im not sure what the problem could be ive had people tell me it could be my u joint or a front seal but im not sure if thats the problem. is it possible that its my differential gears? im new to jeeps and i dont know all that much so any help would be appreciated... thanks guys!

Your post title says angry sparrows, and that's a likely possibility given your description. To find out if indeed that's the problem, remove your front drive shaft, and leave it out for a day or two. If the sound/chirp doesn't return then you've identified it.

CLick this link to Stu Olson's web site to see how to replace the u-joints & centering ball. Or, if you decide you'ld prefer to have it done, take the driveshaft to a shop in your area. Good luck.
