noise coming from truck

was driving home and heard a noise coimng from the front wheel area, pulled off the wheel and looked around. all that i fouind was that the brake rotor was kinda out of balance, so i changed that and i double checked the hub bearing thing and it looked alright, there was no wobble or noise coming from that area when i turned it by hand , would any body else have any ideas, so i did that trick to bypass your vacuum locking hubs , Just tohught i would add that in , but i have a 3.0 and its a 99, any help or ideas. thanks

make sure all the bolts are there, I lost one that holds my caliper on once but you would definatly know if that was your problem. It got bad quick.

The dust seals on the 4x4 wheel bearings will sometime squeal when they get dry or dusty. Maybe that's what you're hearing.
