The front drivers side wheel sqeeks pretty bad. I was wondering if maybe my Wheel Bearing need replaced.

If you are making a right hand turn the front driver bearing would squeak louder then if you were traveling straight. Whenever you put more of a load on that corner of the car the bearing tends to squeak louder. It's usually not a constant tone either, if it sounds like it's a circular tone, or whatever you want to call it, then it's probably a bearing. I would get it checked out.

Check the brake pads. It may not be the bearings. Chevorlet uses a spring that will squeal when the pads get worn. This is to tell you that it is time to replace them.

Hopefully you have resolved this by now. What was it? Your answer can help others. :biggrin:


Waiting too long can result in breaking down if it is the bearings. Chances are it is just your brakes. That has been my experience.
