Squeaky front wheels. HELP!

I own an 88 fullsize Bronco. Recently the front wheels have been making a terrible squeaking noise, this is in forward and reverse. It just started happening after a long trip. Also, when I decelerate I can hear a resonating sound coming from the front fender area, like some sheetmetal is loose?! I think the front wheel bearings need to be looked at, that could be the cause of the squeaking, but I can't figure out what the resonating sound is. It started happening when the wheels became squeaky so I think they go hand in hand. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Squeaky front wheels. HELP!

I lost an inner spindle bearing, had the same sound etc. I could tell nothing until I jacked the truck up to look. Wasnt a pretty sight. First thing pull the hubs apart and take a look, if it is making noise, the problem should be obvious.
Good Luck,
