growl noise on turns on 2002 JG Cherokee

Asked by Mar 24, 2016 at 03:52 PM about the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I make turns with my JGC it makes a growling/dry rubbing sound.  I
have been to 4 different places and no one can tell me what it is.  They
have had different opinions.  Of course all the opinions  come with a price
tag.  Thee last opinion is the differential.  We gave the OK  to repair.  
Guess what, not the differential.  Now it's the transfer case. Cost $98 for
differential.  Will cost $1800 for rebuild on transfer case.  I cannot keep
throwing money out and never fix the problem.  OK that's my problem.  
What  do you think the noise is? (Please don't send a bill...I'm tapped out)

Is it louder when you turn right or left? Typically, if it only growls when turning in one direction, it's a front hub bearing.

I honestly never paid attention. I always thought it was the same both ways. I know if I take a real wide turn sometimes I can get away with no noise. I will try the turn thing next time I drive it. Thank you for the response.
