    Metal to metal noise

    Hello all, I have a 2011 wrangler unlimited, I have a problem with it while turning into a sharp turn I hear metal to metal noise from the front wheels (like if the brake pads are totally finished) but when I checked the pads, they are quiet so good to produce this sound, also, it feels like the front wheels are a bit lose, can anyone help me identifying this problem please?

    Thanks

    You said the front wheels feel loose - have you tried to tighten the lugs? rotated the wheels and inspecting while jacked up? how many miles on it?

    I did try the lugs but it was totally fine, its 138K kilometers, do you think its the wheel bearing?

    You need to get the front end off the ground and check all the suspension and drive components for play along with rotating the wheels to see if they turn quietly and smoothly.
