Default Truck squeak at slow speeds?

I have a 2011 Silverado 2wd, when I’m driving at low speeds, less than 20 I’m hearing a squeak/squeal coming from my passenger side wheel well, nothing changes when I press the brakes or put it in neutral, it seems to be a rotational squeak as it speeds up when I go faster. I just changed my brake pads just to see if that would do it and nothing. Any ideas??

X4. Easy fix. If you can change break pads, you can replace the bearing. YouTube will show you how.

No, but if that doesn’t work, check the driver. If there’s a passenger check them first,

my '01 Silverado started off sounding the same way, it was the U-joints in mine though.

Had the same several years ago and it was U-joints. Sure could be a wheel bearing though.

U joints are a quick pitch change back and foeth the speeds up with vehicle speed. Check the backing plate behind the rotor too, just grab the top and bottom and give a little tug towards the engine, that can happen a lot, especially if you recently did brake work. So yeah, jack it up and slowly spin the wheel or shake it down for play. Also make sure the brake hardware clips aren't touching the rotor.

Nope, not until you...which was what i was thinking. The OP can jump up and down on the bumper and see if he hears the squeak.
