hit a bump..now my front left wheel area has a squeaking coming from it

basically the thread title explains it all...

doesnt seem to be any alignment problems or anything...and the rock wasnt that big...

so i dont think i bent anything.

what the heck could be wrong.

the squeakign happens more when i turn left...and sounds like it happens rotationally..(the faster the wheels spin..the faster it squeaks

I'd be inclined to check your brakes. Could be your brake pad wear indicator (if your brake pads are worn down), and/or the bump jarred your brake hardware loose, causing the squeal.

This may sound very elementary, but if you haven't already, I'd check for loose lugnuts. The wheel will squeak as you described if your lugnuts are loose.

i think i know what it is...i was driving through some water and my brakes probably got a smigen of rust on them overnight bc the squeaking went away...everything is smooth...checked the bolts..eveyrthing looks fine...

i hit the brakes to clean them off and now the squeak is gone...

sound like that could be it?
