Wink Screaming Girl

After going mudding with some buddies, I have this awful screaming noise coming from the driverside wheel. It sounds terrible and happens intermediately. The screaming noise erupts when I start to take off until about 40 mph and then dissappears until I start to slow down again.

I took the wheel, caliper, and break pads off but I didn't notice anything wrong except for when i spun the rotor it would get caught in one certain area.

If anybody can help it would be greatly appreciated, this noise is driving me insane and I hop I'm not destroying anything by continuing to drive with this.

You have a bad unit bearing (hub bearing).

Replace the bearing and inspect the ujoints while you have it apart. www.rockauto.com has great pricing on quality parts.
