ugh....I feel for ya, man. Usually, I feel like I'm the only one with this kind of "luck".

If you're gonna dive into the power steering system, make sure you DON'T use regular power steering fluid. Our Jeeps (all engines, per my manual) require a specific hydraulic fluid....has to be MS-10838 or equivalent, which there aren't many options out there. The official Mopar (68234631AA), which I was able to get on Amazon, and Penray. Links and discussion HERE

I'm going to check its levels...its too ironic it would start whining im hoping its low on fluids. But definitely saw that thread, thanks man.

Also started hearing a chirp this morning driving lol, definitely likely a wheel hub but having super limited funds ill see what rhe shop says Wednesday.

ha...well, if it's just low....that usually means there's a leak....but i think for all the other noises, just turn up your radio at this point! 😄😆

Lol the ironic thing is I asked both shops prior to look for a leak and neither found one

Ok dropped it off at a shop that specializes in tinkered and tinkering Jeeps and 4x4s :) All American Four Wheel Drive. They spent an entire day driving and listening and putting it on racks and checking everything trying to find it. Looks like it may be tcase related all around, the fluid was good but they found a good bit of metal pieces on the magnet, so found something, a more expensive something :(. Waiting for pics and parts needed.
