Drivers side front wheel making awful squeaking/chirping sound...
I need help diagnosing a sqealing/chirping shoud coming from the drivers side wheel on my 92 XJ Laredo.
At first I was thinking I just needed to swap out the hub/bearing assembly but after doing some research I found that it could be a number of things.
Before I spend a bunch of money on parts and tools does anyone have a good run down of things to check so I can determine the issue and fix the right thing?
Some background on this issue - I first noticed it after I had the drivers side sway bar link break. After I replaced the swaybar links I still kept hearing the sound. I did notice that the sound went away on a rainy day but came back after things dried up.
I have checked the serpentine belt and it does not appear to be the issue. The sounds starts at low speeds and seems to happen intermittently. It also seems to happen as I accelerate and sometimes goes away when I let go of the gas.
As I mentioned above it is coming from the driver side front wheel and makes a sqeaking/chirping sound like a very loud bird.
could be the hub, had too change mine out a year ago but mine never made any noise tho but im sure they can..id check the brakes(pads,brake disk)and if you put on a new hub look at the axle when you put it on.
