This sounds like a major problem. I had the same issue with a different truck. I will tell you in all honesty that the front-end is blown. The noise will continue to get worse. Soon it will occur driving in a straight line. The carrier bearings are symptomatic of failure. Its safe to drive on for a while, but in the long run you can eventually snap the front end. But before you go on rebuilding or selling the vehicle drain the fluid and replace with new and see if the problem goes away after driving 8-15 times in a flat parking lot doing figure-eights.

SOURCE: vibration in steering wheel and pulls to the right

Check your front brakes. You may need to grease the caliper slides and machine or turn the rotor. If the rotor is warped it will cause a vibration in the steering wheel, you'll notice it more under varying braking conditions. The caliper could be sticking which can cause a pull. As for the squeaky rear end, being a car that old its time to replace the rear bushings. If they are greaseable then just regrease them. If you replace them consider going with urethane or polyurethane bushings. They will give a better ride than the stock rubber bushings. If the new ones come with grease fittings make sure you grease them at least twice a year, but at every oil change would be wise.

SOURCE: Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.

Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

SOURCE: Front end rubbing or grinding noise but goes away

It could be a number of things, but a common problem with this car is rusty pins in the front end.  This is louder when turning.  There was a bulletin issued about it.

When accelerating the truck vibrates and feels like tires are rubbing on fender well or something

It might be the universal joints in the driveshaft are worn out or busted. Or something might be wrong in the rear end or transfer case if its a 4x4.

I have a 1996 chevy suburban. Every time I turn left it makes an squeaking/rubbing noise. What could it be?

Its hard to say for sure but if the brakes work OK in a stright line brakeing situation with on steering wheel shake side to side . Its most likely a ball joint problem . Although it could be a wheel bearing or a blown shock or a tierod end . The best thing you can do is to jack the front of the vehicle up be safe about it put it on stands and block the rear wheels . And see if the wheel moves up and down or side to side i don't mean turn it . If you can feel movenent no matter how minor there is a problem . Then you need to viseuly inspect to parts in the front end compare it to the other side look for riped boots and oil leaking from the shocks if all this looks OK check the wheel bearing it maybe loose . But look at the boots on the upper and lower ball joints and remember any movement at all it a problem it should be tight all parts in the entire front end

If it is constantly shaking? Sounds like a knot on your tire. Because if it was tie rod end or sway bar then it would stop at certain times. Like slow speeds, or when you turn a little then straighten it back out.
Jack it up and pull on the wheels and if something is loose or worn out it will show up. Feel around the tire for a knot. Lower the jack to where the tire barely clears the ground and spin it. It will hit the ground if there is a knot you cant feel.

99 bravada sluggish/hesitating while turning right or left

If youre talking about wheel hop when turning at slow speeds with only the info you have provided I would guess it has smart track AWD and this is normal, How ever if you have push button 4x4 controls your front drive axle could be locked in, in that case have a garage check it out...

Do you have a 4WD Bravada? Or an AWD? If it is AWD, there is no shifting. It is in 4WD Drive all the time.

Do you have something on the dash that allows you to change from 2WD to 4WD HI/Lo? Is so, then check your fuses in the fuse box. You may just have a blown fuse.
