Default Tire squeal/ weird noise

I get this weird noise coming from the front end (possible the back) of my car when making turns. First I thought it was the tire tread so I inspected my tires and rotated them but the problem is still.

It only occurs when i make sharp turns left/right or when I do quick lane changes on the highway. The sound is quick and sqeaky

I had problems with my '94 se similar to what you describe.

when i would turn right, the passanger side wheel would make a squeaky singing sound.
It turned out to be a faulty wheel bearing.
bought a new one for 180$


I also had a rubbing noise comming from my passanger wheels. But i think this one
is due to a sticky caliper, as it sounds more like a rubbing- and the calipper is leaky.. i will tackle this one soon.

The way to test wheel bearings is typically to jack up the car and placing your hands on the tire at 3 and 6 o'clock..wiggle. any looseness?

Now try 12 and 6, anything?
