More than likely the caliper is squeaking as the rotor spins or it is your wheel bearing.

Not sure what type vehicle we're talking about here, although you can lube up the rack and pinion or grease up your upper, if so equipped, and lower ball joints.

Intermittent noise from front driver wheel hub?

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

I replaced front pads on my 2000 crown vic. The caliper is stuck on the passenger side .i bleed the brakes an it was fine befor i changed the pads is the caliper shot ???

If the brake fluid has NOT been changed on any vehicle
every 2 years since it was new, you can be assured that after
10 years ,the inside of the calipers are all rust

Replace the calipers & the rubber flex hoses, as they collapse
inside also.

You MUST remove ALL Rust from any surface the pads or calipers slide on & use anti-seize on those surfaces

You must remove all rust from wheel hub face,both side of the rotor & mounting face of the wheels & lube them also

You have to remove & clean the caliper slide pins/bolts & use
the synthetic caliper lube inside there

Need a helper to bleed the brakes & have to start at the back
& do all 4 corners

When i take a left turn i hear a squeak and it starts to grind

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.

I have a 2008 Toyota matrix with 50k miles. I have a squeak on the right side wheel (I beleive front). I check the brakes on all four tires, all very good. I see nothing, no play in the wheels. Is

If the noise is from 25 thru 45 mph--- then you remove the
front caliper & rotor,set aside & turn the wheel hub bearing
by hand

You will only feel bad bearings doing it that way

2004 ford explorer tire bushing on front tires, when taken off cant see where to lube them? does anyone know??? Leave me a comment at [email protected]

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.

I replaced brake rotors and pads on front end.Now the driver side brakes grinds and when i stop the car,i noticed this side is smoking. I'm pretty sure i assembled it correctly.

You obviously need to take it back apart and see what the issue is. Did you install the pad backwards?? You could have cocked the piston when you compressed it back in .

Noise coming from front brakes or wheel ,i change brake pads

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?
