Nasty squeel/scrape when i turn left.

Past few days i have developed a bad bad squeel/scrapin noise when i turn left. It is def not front wheel bearings ( not that kind of sound) it sounds like the rear dust shield is possibly scrapin the rotor but i dont know why it would only do it whne i turn left. Also if im turning and press the gas it goes away. it is also distinctly from the right side of the truck. anyone have this happen?

checked drive shaft, not that.

My 98 did that until I replaced the swaybar end link (which was sheared in 2). Only made noise when I turned because of the weight shift
