Front end issue when turning

I have an 06 wk 4x4 Laredo. When I turn make a U turn or turn close to full lock in either direction, the front end sounds like it's whining or grinding with some clicking. I feel like it's something in the cv axles, but not sure. Maybe the quadra drive is engaging or disengaging. Either way I don't think it's supposed to make this noise. It drives fine the rest of the time. I do have a 2 inch lift, don't know if that makes that much of a difference. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!!

Re: Front end issue when turning

Did you check the CV joint boots for rupture? If the boot fails, the grease goes out and the joint wears quickly due to dirt ingress. Then they can start making noises.

I haven't checked thoroughly but from just stickin my head under the truck, they look good. I'll check when I have time to take it apart. No grease on undercarriage though

Re: Front end issue when turning

Will the cv axles grind if the 4wd system needs to be serviced? Or if it's low on fluid? I'm really hoping this isn't a serious issue.

Front end issue when turning

Could it just be the ESP system, or is it a different kind of sound?
