annoying sound

    I have a 2003 f250 crew cab that is making a squeak from what seems to be the right side of the truck. It is metal on metal
    After putting it in drive and starting to roll I notice it is loud and then fades away. It is a "rolling" squeak.
    With 63000 on it I'm thinking it is the center carrier bearing. Could it be a wheel bearing?
    I replaced the brakes all the way around but my guy says it was doing it before the brakes

    It is driving me crazy and I can't find it.
    Any ideas and tests I could run to find out this annoying squeak?

    Thanks

    Send your wife on vacation that should stop the noise!:D




    Is the dust cover touching the rotor?
    How loud is it?

    When you did the brakes how was the caliper?
    Did the slider pins work freely.
    Warped rotor?

    I had that same issue and it was my dust cover (as grandview) suggested. They started rusting out and rubbing on my rotor and/or on the rims. Replaced them and the sound was gone.

    I'm going to try your suggestions today. I'll get back to you.
    Grandview, your right but she rarely rides in this truck. That sound is only when I'm driving hers.:D :D
