Unhappy Left front wheel squeaks...


I am not sure what's going on here... When I drive, I hear a noticeable squeak for each revolution of the wheel on the left (driver's) front side. It stops when I brake, and when I get to highway speed, I don't really notice it anymore.

It's only this wheel. I just got an alignment done... could that be the cause?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

are your rotors painted,
, i had the same problem, forever,
it was from the painted rotors moving a tad because the paint
, ,
try this, lift up the oddening wheel, unbolt it
look at the rim wher it hits the hub, is there any wear marks
, if so, rotate the wheel a few spots and rebolt up, to specs with a tourk wrench, usng a star pattern when tightening it up
2. could be a wheel bearng,, does the tier and rim shake in your hand when jacked up,
3 the pads could be rubbin, or the pad squeeler could be hiting the rotor,
just bend it back or do a brake job,
the rotor could be wraped, does the brake pedal pulesate upon hard brakeing,
good luck,, i know what a pan in the asss thouse noices are,

Well, I just had the wheel bearing in that wheel replaced, and just got the alignment done. It wouldn't surprise me if it were the wheel bearing given the mechanic that installed it

Could it be anything else though?
