Ok I'm about out of ideas? My little '93 Mazda B2200 pickup has a squeak/squeal/chirp or whatever you would call it. The sound is coming from the driver side front wheel, I just now pulled the cap off the hub, it has plenty of grease, wheel is tight but not over tightened. When that front wheel is jacked off the ground, I can give the wheel a hard spin and it only does about 1 and a half turns before it stops. I would think it should spin better then that? The noise starts at around 30 to 40 MPH and it doesn't stop till the pickup slows down or stops. Anyone have any ideas? I am needing this pickup to go to Tulsa in a couple weeks and I want to make sure everything is on the up and up before I drive it 218miles.

 

I already replaced all the brakes and the front wheels bearings.

Thanks for any info

You already checked my ideas. What about suspension?

I know right, after brakes and wheel bearings I'm out of ideas too.

 

It isn't the suspension, it's not that kind of squeak, it starts up quite at around 30mph and gets louder when you go faster. It doesn't matter if it's on a rough country road or nice pavement, the squeak doesn't change.

Thanks

My first guesses are. Sticking brake wheel cylinder or Sticking calliper. Or sticking calliper sliders. If the wheel in not turning like it should, something is sticking and causing a brake squeal. Or the wheel bearing is adjusted to tight causing the drag on the wheel. Or the bearings are the wrong ones. Oh, and is it drum or disk brake. Just some ideas. Sounds like you covered them all thou.

 I'm still thinking bearings.

Chirping could be the brake wear indicator.

My first thought would be the brakes are adjusted a bit to tight, or something is on the pad/shoe that is dragging.  How does the other front wheel compare as far as the spin test?  Make sure they are both the same.

What happens when you apply light braking at 40-60 mph, does it pull?

No help, but if I could give you a ride in my 95 Camry I'm sure you would forget about the squeak and worry about the rear strut rattling in the trunk, the engine rattling noise at idle, and the passenger front tire thumping / vibration at around 60-75.

One question have you verified that is where the sound is coming from by having someone else ride with you. I have seen many times that a sound seemed to be from some place but when someone else is in the vehicle you find that the sound is some place else. Just a thought.

"It's a funny squeaky sound"

"you couldn't hear a dump truck driving through a nitroglycerine plant"

 

Just turn up the radio a little, the squeak will go away  :poke: :poke: :rolling: :rolling:

Did you use the disc brake squeal eliminator paste that usually comes with pads?  It sure can make a difference.

Dust cover. Tried to think of that name yesterday. Ya. A rusted or loose one could cause a noise.

Not to stray from thread too much but I repaired a dust cover on wifes Toyota car couple weeks ago. That tin plate sells for $330 per pair! And a job to replace. Some of the GM dust covers are offered as a 2 piece unit which makes for a quick and easy replacement for about $40 a pair
