Squeaky something?

Something in the front of my truck is squeaking. It's definitely something that rotates because it speeds up when I'm going faster. Also, it gets louder when i turn right while I'm moving. Any Common problems that match these symptoms? Thanks!

Bad wheel bearing or a cat caught in the rim.

I like the cat caught in the rim. Watch out for it's claws when you jack it up to check for the squeal, I mean squeak.

I'll ask u the same question i ask $paz's01 does it make the noise when you step on the brake? IF it doesn't make the noise when your foots on the break pedal you're gonna wanna remove your wheels and sand down your pads and rotors and your rear drums....at could be you just got alitle mud in between your pads which cause the pads 2 just nip the rotors/drums cause them 2 squeak when they rotate....Thats what i would check first. Unless you've never been for wheeling
