So I'm kinda new to this whole work on your own car thing and I have a 2005 gmc sierra that has started to squeek whenever I drive from what I can tell it's coming from the front drivers side tire my first thought was maybe a wheel bearing but not sure haven't done much troubleshooting or research yet just didn't know if anyone else might of had the same problem

Unfortunately, without more detail there are more than a few things it could be.


Some questions that will help narrow it down:
-Does it change when you brake?

-Does it change when you turn?

-Does it change when you accelerate or coast?

-Is it a constant squeal or a chirp?
-Do you feel any vibration?
-Do you see any leaks?

-Is it tire speed dependent or engine speed dependent?

Is it possible that your brakes need servicing? You could have a warped rotor or something like that

It could also be a front driveshaft U-joint. Or a wheel bearing like you suspected
