phantom squeak

I've got a squeak coming from the front of my TJ that I can't figure out. It's not angry sparrows b/c I've got my front driveshaft removed right now. The squeak sorta goes with wheel movement, but it seems to only do it when under power. When I come to a stop sign or red light, there is no squeak when I'm coasting to a stop, yet when I apply the throttle, there it is.

I'm puzzled.

I had some squeaking too in the front when accelerating and found it was my exhaust manifold bolts were getting loose. It takes a 15mm socket on a long extension to get up in between the spaces. Best to get a swivel socket to reach the bolts.
