Default Sqeaks when i turn...

So my truck usedto squeak when turning but not a full lock just only when i slightly turn the wheel about half turn,anyways so i figuredit was cause of how bad my rotors were,so i did a brake job and repacked the bearings and it went away for a couple of weeks but now its back and its the same sound it sounds like the rotor rubbing on the pads cause its a metal on metal sqeak more than anything,just looking for some input cause im thinking that maybe i didnt pack the wheel bearings good enough but any input is appreciated

Default Re: Sqeaks when i turn...

My first guess would be the bearings. This just happened to me a few weeks ago. I was recommended to get TEMKIN bearings. I didn't do that yet, but to make a long story short, $1300 later my truck runs like new again. I had to get new brakes, rotors, bearings. everything was f*cked. Here is the link to my thread you can see what some of the other guys said.
