Mostly while making left turns at low speeds and rarely while just driving at low speeds, i will hear a squeaking noise from my left from wheel, any ideas H-I?

:facepalm: for my noob status

Possible wheel bearing or hub? Have you hit anything with that wheel?

if it happens with out a bump in the turn then i agree wheel hub/bearing but if it is louder or occurs more often with a bump in the turn then i probably is a ball joint or control arm bushing. the latter should be cheaper to fix. to test just jack the wheel off the ground about 2 inches and use a lever and pivot to flex the suspension of the suspect corner and see if you can replicate the sound standing still.

doubt its the bearings unless you been beat on her at TWS or MSR constantly.

More than likely its a bushing. tighten everything down. last time i heard something last this, my sway bar was a tad loose.

yup bushing unless u got alftermarket springs?because those tend to make noise no matter what.

using aftermarket spring will give u a big gap between the spring and top hat,the spring will tend to move around,if u were on stock spring it would be compress so it wouldn't move around.

use the little test i posted. it could save you money in the long run. just look for slop as you pry upward on your tire
