My driver side front wheel is squeaking from 15-35mph when I turn left. The truck is really ruff when you hit any kind of patches on the interstate kinda jerks the wheel just don't feel right might be the bearings?

I always work on my own stuff but it sounds like a wheel bearing. Most of the time they will go out around the same time so you may be better off to change both sides if it is the wheel bearing. Im not sure what it'll cost for what you drive but I got a dodge truck and for one side it was around 150 so it may run you quiet a bit

That's pretty high. I would go to parts store and get one and find a small time mechanic to put it on if you can't do it yourself

I am an ase certified master technician and know these problems all too well! A bearing would not cause a jerk on rough patches. Any change in ride during suspension travel would be suspension related. That along with the squeak, and the fact that it is a very common problem with dodge vehicles I would be willing I bet that you have at least one ball joint with an excessive amount of slack.

Shawn Birdwell on Main st across from the Armory, or Shawn Carter over on Booth next to the Frozen Delight. He does all my stuff, I always get it back the same day, & his rates are SOOO cheap! His work is righteous!

I'm gonna be 100% honest here & say that Paul's garage is NOT trustworthy. I know this for a fact because I was part of a sting that caught him on several occasions lying about "repairs" made to vehicles that were NOT worked on. We marked certain parts of certain vehicles, & placed markers in them to see if they were being operated on as promised. They were not. We began using cameras to check on another level, once again, nothing but lies. There's a reason he's on record. That's fact. Not gonna keep up w/ this thread after I submit this because I know what happened. I was physically there.
