The rubbing sound you hear may or may not be related to the differential condition. If the diff lube has not been changed in the last 12,000 miles, it's due for a change: it is recommended as normal service.(front and rear) If the diff is leaking or very low, or, if there is a noise, just replacing the lube won't help. You need to correct the problem.
The average JL tech is well trained in removing and replacing oil drain plugs and filters. Leave the real diagnosis to a trained experts. You may have a piece of plastic column cover rubbing (easy to fix) or something more serious such as a hub bearing or differential internal bearing failing.

    Providing that the rubbing noise is coming from the column and not being transmitted up the column from elsewhere, you can shoot some silicone spray in the area that you have identified as the noise source. The silicone will not harm any internal parts and will help things slide without noise. Worst case, you will need to remove the plastic covers on the column and spray the internal parts as well. (not really that difficult, but you may need a long torx bit screwdriver to get in there).

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited makes rear noise when turning left?


Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

Isuzu 3.0 TD 2005 - Steering wheel makes squeking sound when turning steering wheel to both sides. Quiet on strait roads. Sounds like plastic rubbing when turning steering wheel. Sprayed lubricant on...


Disconnect steering column down by brake pedals and turn wheel with steering disconnected.....if squeak is still there its in the upper steering column bearings...squirt silicon spray down the top tube [below the steering wheel] until it runs out thru the tube lower bearing.
P.S dont forget to reconnect the steering!!!

Rear differential leaking


Gear lube is SAE 75W-90 GL-5 gear lubricant. If you have a limited slip diff, add 4 oz of limited slip additive.
