crazy squeaking on driver side front end??

My truck was going fine and I parked it on a Friday. Then on Saturday I spray painted my frame black. Then on Monday I left for work and now the drivers side front wheel is squeaking horribly! Squeaks when I turn bounce it up and down and all the time when I'm driving. I've sprayed everything with grease and it didn't even quite it down a little bit. Any ideas what it could be?? Thanks!

sounds to me like your wheel bearings are shot. do you know how to check them?

Yeah I know how to check my wheel bearings. Jack it up and wiggle the tire right? I don't think its that though because it squeaks while just sitting still if you lift up and push down on that side with your hands.

Maybe paint got on a bushing somewhere? That could maybe put a coating over it and squeak...just a guess though
