Squeak -- Brakes?

Just a question for you guys. I've developed a "squeak" in the front drivers wheel. By "squeak" I mean kinda like a chain being dropped on the ground over and over again right quick. Also the rim has been getting quite a lot hotter then the passenger side one. Now I've had the brakes on that side stick on me a few times, so I'm thinking that it could be brake related, but the brakes aren't sticking now, because on a flat the truck will still roll freely with no problems. I just want to get all input I can before I start changing parts. Thanks a bunch.

All I can say is clean your sliders where you pads sit and while your in there do the rest of the caliper with some break clean...........hopefully that will help.

Good Luck
