I have a squeek comming from my front drivers side. It happens when I'm moving say under 20 mph.
As soon as I press the breaks (even lightly) the noise goes away. It sounds as if it goes along with the wheel movement (only happens while in motion) - also it doesn't usually takes some driving before it starts.

I'm uncertin if this sounds like wheel bearings or something break related or something else. If anyone can shed some light I'd appreciate it.

FYI: 89 FSB 35" tires 6" lift & I recently replaced my wheel bearings.

My Truck was Doing the same thing thought it was squeelers on Brake pads pulled off the wheel for the first time and realised I didnt have any. It was the small metal shim on the brake one of the tabs broke off and slid into the wheel. So I pulled it out till i got a new one from the junk yard

Everything worked Fine just a funny squeek.

I actually have this problem on my brother's '89 Maxima, same exact symptoms. He said it seems the brakes are getting less effective, so he is gonna get them looked at to see if there might be some weird problem with them.

I took the hub and rotor off yesterday and couldn't find where a problem might exist. I spun the system by hand with no squeek. I thought it was nothing or that it was fixed. I drove it around for about 15 20 miles then the sound came back.
I'm going the new brakes route for now (they arn't that close but I'd rather be safe and I'm sure it couldn't help with the bigger tires)
