metal squeek reall wicked sounding

Well its been a while everyone, hope everyone is well! I dont know what this is exactly, its a horrible squeeking coming from under my truck. I shook down the front end and no sounds, thats the weird thing is it doesn't squeek when i'm hitting bumps just when i'm driving it will do it. Sounds really nasty like metal on metal, is it possible my torsion bars are causing this? Thanks and i look forward to all the imput.

Bent splash shield behind a front brake rotor or maybe separated pad or foreign material rubbing on the rotor.
If it was doing it when hitting bumps I'd say suspension.If it's only doing it under motion - drive train.
Bad wheel bearing
Any leaks at the end of the differential ?
Missing brake caliper mounting bolt allowing the caliper to hit the tire rim (especially nasty outcome) ?

Food for thought.

My ball joints are on the way out and they make a terrible metal on metal squeeking/creaking sometimes. It does it totally random too. Sometimes on bumps sometimes turning sometimes going straight.

most likely its the wheelbearings, or the hub bearings ,i just had to replace both my front ones and its was doing the same thing your talkin about, and they r about 150-300 a each, depending on 4 wheel ,or two wheel abs
