Default 1998 4.0 Front Hub Squeel

As stated in the title of the post, have a 98 4.0 4x4 that has squeel coming from the front passengers side wheel assy area. If the squeel, that I assume is a bearing, was there constantly I would believe it to be a wheel bearing assy. But, it is there only when I engage the 4x4. Will replacing the wheel bearing assy ($$) take care of this matter even though it appears related only to the 4x4?

Think I've got it figured out... A little grease quieted the squeel that was actually coming from the bracket that steadies the front 4x4 drive to the passenger side wheel. We'll see if it returns....
