Is it my brakes or my wheel bearing?
So I am in the process of what seems like replacing everything on my 96 F350... two weeks when i picked the truck up for the first time, on the way home it started pulling to the right real bad when braking and it was squeaking constantly during the 15 mile trip home. When i parked it the front left wheel was very hot. The next morning I replaced the caliper and although it does not get hot or pull anymore, it squeaks LOUD anytime the wheels are turning, doesn't go away or really change pitch when i press the brake pedal. Today i noticed that on the back side of the spindle where the axle stub goes into the spindle, it has puked out alot of grease. Noticed it after a road trip last week, monitored the grease since then and no more grease has come out. Worried about the wheel bearing now, do the bearings squeak if they run dry or low on lube?
