Bearings or brakes?

Hey, I noticed to day while running some errands that there was a loud squeaking coming from one of my wheels. At first it was when I was coming up to a stop light so I though it could have been a stone in the brake pad. Well I got to home depot did my shopping then got back in the truck and drove over to the buger king for lunch, and I squeaked the whole way across the parking lot which was about 2000ft. so when I got to the window the truck squeaked when I put it in park. It kinda rolled back a bit and squeaked when it did. I got out after I got my food and checked the rotors with my hand and they were all the same temp. So I kinda suspected a bearing. But when I pulled out and got up to speed 55mph. It stopped. After I got home which was about 30 miles. Once I got home I again checked all rotor with a thermometer, they were all with in 2 or 3 degrees. Same with the hubs. So that's why I'm perplexed as to the root of the issue, what are ya'lls thoughts. I'm pissed off and hitting the jack, I'll look at it tomorrow.

I would also say u joint. However, are you sure its coming from the wheels? it could also be a tensioner/idler pulley?

Yeah it was definatly coming from the wheels. When I stopped moving it stopped. That's why I figured something drive line related. I have put about 80 miles on it since and the squeak has gone away, I'm now wondering if it was a stone caught in between the rotor and pad. I had that happen on my 150 but it was a grinding not a squeak.
