2000 XJ Rear Axle Rubbing/Binding Noise

Hi. My Xj produces a kind-of rubbing or binding noise when going around corners. It's doing pretty good when I first start rolling in the morning, but after like 15 minutes it sounds pretty bad. Is it my wheel bearings or is it my differential? Thanks in advance.

Posting XJ questions in the XJ section of the JeepForum will get you the fastest responses.

If the differential has a factory installed Limited Slip it probably needs some friction modifier added to the gear oil. If not that, then you need to look inside the axle at the differential bearings, the spider gears, and the outer axle bearings.

Not enough information to say. Maybe you should consider removing the differential cover and taking a look at things.

Rubbing binding action sure sounds like a limited slip in need of friction modifier additive.
