Help my front end is squealing

I just bought a new rig the weekend before last. It has a Chevy Dana 60 king pin front end with fox coilovers. I took it out to a local offroad park this past weekend to check everything out. The rig did really well but I noticed that the front end was squealing when the brakes where pushed. It seemed to squeal every other turn of the tire. The tone of the squeal also changed when I put pressure on the brakes. I figured that the front end needed pads. When I got it home I inspected the pads and they looked to be in good shape. I jacked the front end up and engaged the front end only. I could hear the squealing again about every other turn. When I applied pressure to the brake the the squealing was louder. I thought that the pads had debris in them so I sprayed them with cleaner. I took the rig out and drove it around and the squealing seemed to be worse. Now is seems to squeal constantly when driving it down the road. I am beginning to think it is a bearing. Does anyone have any advice.

How the hell are we supposed to diagnose a noise on your rig? Start taking shit apart till you find the problem, or sell it to someone with brains enough to work on it, or able enough to search on how to take it apart.

Thanks to all you A-holes for the help. It ended up being a warped rotor. After having it turned and new pads installed squealing fixed. I

Yeah I am sure it was. Nice job on the flaming I would have liked to seen a few more insults though. We could have made this thread last a lot longer.

What do you expect from someone named after "baby-shit"?

Yeah I thought I knew what is was, but I started second guessing myself once I got it home and drove it on the road. I just thought I might get some friendly advice before tearing into it. I knew I shouldn't post it as soon as I hit the button. If you will PM me your email address I will send you some pics.

Your question should be asked in the non hardcore section. You'll notice because your thread currently resides in the non hardcore section. The hard core section is for you to tell us how you fixed your front end from squealing. And for us to flame those that can't figure it out.
