Hey everyone, i searched multiple threads and all i could come up with is the brakes or the wheel beerings.

Let me explain the issue... Sometimes the rear driver side wheel will make this metal on metal squeeling noise and its sometimes loud and sometimes not. When i make a hard or somewhat soft right turn it squeels pretty loud, which scared me.

So i thought the wheel was coming off, went home torqued the bolts, they were tight as anything to begin with so it wasn't that.

I have no idea what this is, did anyone else experience this issue before, i want to get it fixed, it makes the truck sound like a pile of crap..

Thanks :)

when my front wheel bearing assembly went bad, it made a rubbing noise and vibration. it sounded something like a loud humming noise/grind. got alot worse while turning in 1 direction, got somewhat quieter turning opposite. (from the weight transfer while turning) hope this helps some....

Could be a rear axle bearing. Much more likely to be a bent brake shield touching the rotor, or less likely broken brake pads scraping and damaging the rotor. Other possibilities include broken emergency brake parts inside the drum, or a broken c-clip holding the axle into the differential so the only thing keeping your axle in is the brake caliper, or something like a rock caught in the brake assembly. Everything should show signs of scraping the rotor, inside or outside, so I'd get the wheel off and if you don't see anything, remove the caliper and then the rotor and keep looking.

Or if you're not a mechanic - get it to a specialist.
