Squeaky wheel

Ok, well a couple of days ago, I was driving my 97 tj around in an area with a bunch of construction and there was this jump that had been made from torn up roads. It wasn't too steep of an incline so I looked around to see if anyone was around then I hit the jump at about 15-20 mph. Nothin too hardcore, didn't get any air I don't think [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. Now afterwards, every once in a while I hear a squeaking coming from what seems like the right front wheel that only happens when I'm going forward (not in reverse). It sqeaks every time the wheel makes a revolution, [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] and in any gear, or in neutral. If I speed up, it goes away(maybe I just can't hear it) and I can slow down and it may or may not be there. What do yall think?

What do yall think?

[/ QUOTE ]1. I think you play you pay,
2. Jack up the offending wheel,
3. Rotate the wheel by hand,
4. Feel for any rotational abnormalities,
5. A wobble,
6. A slight drag,
7. Pull the wheel,
8. Look at the brake disk for wear.
9. If the problem's a repeatable as you say,
10. It should be easily found,
11. Now all ya gotta do is find it.
