4 wheel drive squeaking when turning

The subject speaks for itself. Driving in two wheel drive I don't get a sqeak, but in four wheel drive it squeaks when I turn either direction. I assume stub shaft u-joint but I cant find a zirk fitting to lube it. Any ideas?

if your replacing the u-joint yourself be careful of the speed sensor in the hub.its plastic and if removed pull straight out ,dont twist it will break.
