It could be a bad wheel bearing or possibly a hanging caliper. Check the caliper and wheel bearing out. If the brake pads are wearing out at an angle , its a good indicator its the brake caliper. Also check out all tie rods, connectors , ball joints, engine and transmission mounts. And also most importantly investigate the CV axle if equipped
You probably have one or more bad ball joints in the steering on the front end. This truck should have grease zerks on the ball joints. If you greese everything and it gets quite, then it is the ball joints. However a WARNING. If the ball joint was squeaking and grinding, it should be replaced. Have a good mechanic check it out. Its hard to do yourself without the proper tools and knowledge. This is possibly a dangerous situation and something could come loose on the front end and you lose the ability to control the vehicle.
There are other possibilities, like snow and ice build up between the tires. Or bad wheal bearings. Jack the front end up, and rotate the wheels. They should spin freely with no noise. Next grap the wheel top and bottom. There should be no play.
If this is a four wheel drive vehicle it is a possiblility you have bad CV joints or universal joints which transfer power to the wheels. To check this, engage the 4x4, set the parking brake, and jack up the front end. Grap the wheel and try to rotate it, it should not move at all. . If the CV joints are out, you should be able to hear noise when you do this.
Did you have the rotors machined or replace them ,if there too thin to machine?
Did you buy quality oem specific pads or the cheapest you could find?
Did you remove all rust from pad slides,slippers or caliper mounting bracket?
Did you lube the pad,sliding surfaces?
Did you flush and bleed all 4 calipers.
Did you remove all rust from face of caliper mounting surface. ( bearing flange/stud, face)
Torque wheels after cleaning mounting surface?
There are no "tire bushings". There is a complete front wheel bearing assembly that if bad, will need to be replaced. There are also no lube fittings on any of these assembly's. You need to remove the entire brake assembly, rotors, calipers, and caliper mount just to get to the nut for the front wheel bearing. Then you have to take cotter pin out of the main nut on the end of the axle, and take off the nut locking nut, you will need a 32mm socket, (if memory serves me correctly) to take the axle nut off. Then there will be 3 bolts on the back side of the axle housing that will need to come out, unplug your electronic brake wire, and the wheel bearing should fall right out.
Did you have the rotors turned? Did you check for rotor runout? Did you remove all rust from hub face and rotor mounting surface? Did you remove rust from caliper or pad slides? Lube all caliper and pad sliding surfaces? Are the pads application specific? Did you flush and bleed the fluid? Did you torque the wheels properly?
