Brakes or Wheel Bearings?

Postby SunLitSandMax00SE » Mon Oct 08, 2012 12:06 am

Squeaking is coming from my front wheels while driving and it stops as soon as any brake pressure is applied. Obvious answer is that the pads need to be replaced (i's been a few years), but I want to make sure it's not the wheel bearings due to FX 20's. I almost remember I might have heard the squeaking after the brakes had been replaced, but I can't remember.

I'd say it's the brake pads.

Sometimes dust gets under the pad and causes squealing until pressure is applied.
