Hi, over the last few weeks my Altezza has developed a squeak from the drivers side front wheel. It sounds like a squeak of a rotating part which I can hear while driving, it gets louder when turning left as the car puts more weight on that wheel so i'm thinking wheel bearings? Just want get a 2nd opinion before i change both front wheel bearings! The car recently had new track rod ends, lower ball joints and upper arms and has been polybushed so everything there should be grand. Thanks!

It sounds like the pads rubbing against the discs but it get alot louder when the weight builds up on that wheel when cornering. Pads are not sticking but i have been wondering if there is abit of play in the bearings is it causing the disc to rub on the pad more?
