I have a loud squeeking noise coming from the undercarriage. It is most pronounced between 1-30 miles per hour, when it normally stops. It seems to get worse with cornering. It is intermittent, and sometimes doesnt happen at all, but usually does. Hitting the breaks doesnt affect the noise ussually, but today it did on one try.

So far, I have pulled the wheels and rotated them by hand. . . felt good, no bearing grind. Looked at pads, look good.

Changed ujoints in rear driveshaft.

Topped off fluid in rear diff., down a few ounces.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Update:

Turned out to be the outside wheel bearing on the rear driver's side. Long story short, it failed and welded itself to the stub axle. Word to the wise, repack your wheel bearings when you buy a disco to be sure they are good to go.

That being said, the fact that they were able to go as long as they did before failing is amazing and a testament to the overengineering LR did on these trucks!
