Default Brakes? Noise from under the front.

I've got a squeal/squeek coming from the drivers side I think. But it only happens when I've got the steering wheel turned just a hair to the right of center. And stops when I touch the brakes.

Any suggestions?

I think it'* a good possibility. Be sure to check the inner and outer pads when you take a look.

If its not the pads themselves, check the inside of your rim to see if maybe the caliper is rubbing.

Ok got to checking the brakes... Nothing wrong that I seen. Both pads and the rotor were fine.

I don't think that the caliper is rubbing either. There was no places on the rim that where worn down or clean.

Nope, I think it may be a wheelhub or something needing greased.

Default Doubt the hub needs greased

OK IIRC the hubs are a sealed unit so no way to grease.
Have you replaced them recenty?
I know on my 93 ofter I replaced the hubs, the dust sheid behind the caliper scrapes on the disc a little. And this also stops when applying the breaks. I fixed mine like any good redneck, with a large screwdriver and a hammer, and bent it away from the disk slightly.

Is worth checkin even if you haven;t done the bearings lately.

Am sure Will or a couple of other "Gods" here will have more ideas and probably be right on the money, they have always been with my problems

Strut bearing??
Pull plastic cover off of strut tower and shoot some oil in holes you see underneath.
Drive a couple of miles and see if noise is gone.
