Is this when the car is at a stand still?

Does it happen when you turn to the right?

it has not happened on a right turn yet. it seems to happen like when i am in a parking spot and pull out to the left or if i am making a left hand u-turn.

One obvious thing could be tires starting to have less and less tread on them. Mine used to squeal like a mother in parking garages and parking lots. Got new tires and turns are quiet as a mouse. This is probably something you should be able to eliminate right away if you have good tires. Just a thought.

Also had to get an alignment on the mothers WJ cause there was a grinding noise coming from the steering. That was taken care of. However there is a high pitched squeal from the WJ when making slight left turns and it happens for a split second. But I only notice it when I drive it...lol.

both my jeeps will do that on certain types of concrete like in the gas station. Yet ride and wear perfectly.

yeah like say Im in the gas station and making a manuever, they will squeal then, my XJ is bad. but it has a set of Michelin put on at 77, its at 132 today.55K miles and not done yet. so they wore well but it ALWAYS DOES IT. parking garages. I tyhink the concrete is too smooth.
