Default Front squeaking noise

Hi everyone, hoping to get some help with an issue that just started about a couple weeks ago and has started getting more noticeable.
The issues is I have a squealing noise coming from
My front drivers side wheel.
Brakes and rotors were changed and have a lot of paid left. When driving slowly and turning left, I can hear it loudly. Plus when driving over some what big bumps and dips I hear the squeak in the front end.
I have had wheel bearing s and ball joints replaced. Struts replaces in September of last year.
I did lube all of my bushings in the front end as well as ball joints, tie rod ends and my lift bushing.
The squeal stopped and then started again. I’m going to hit it with the grease gun tomorrow and see if that helps.
I know that my calipers haven’t been changed and are still stock.
I do have a 6” fabtech lift.
Does the sway bar links squeal? Or the sway bar bushings?

Idk And I don’t want to take to garage if I can solve the issue. If calipers, then a trip to the garage I suppose.

Thanks in advance.

Tell us more about your truck
This is the 2011 section of the forumZ, so it must be a 2011

Is it a 2 wheel drive or 4WD ?

Could it be that a half shaft is going bad or something to do with the actuator that engages it ?

I have had my cv shafts replaced as well as the front drive shaft. Idk. It sounds like it coming from the wheel though. I’m thinking caliper is sized or getting there. Idk. I noticed the squeal first when going through a drive-thru, very slowly slightly turning to the left. Sounded like brake pads but checked and I have tons left. Cylinder stuck?

Behind the caliper, there are 2 slide pins
When a brake job is done, those pins are supposed to be rust free & lubed

If they are not clean & lubed, they can cause the caliper to act like it was seized

these videos may help you

Yeah that’s what I’m
Thinking, the garage may not have cleaned and
lubed the pins when they changed everything for me. I’ll have to Check that out. I was thinking of just replacing the calipers altogether. Thanks for the vids and help.

Well just to update, idk what was happening, but it stopped after it rained. Hasn’t made any noise since. I checked the dust shield and bent that back a bit just after posting yesterday, however still made the noise.
Seems Good now. I also juiced up the upper ball
Joints as they appeared to be low on grease. No issues now and thanks guys for the suggestions and vids.
Lyle.

Update on the update lol,
I hit soaked the shit out of the control arm
Bushings, and all the rubber bushings in my lift/suspension, also greased up the ball joints and all the grease fittings for my lift with Silicone spray and all the squeaking stopped. The tire hasn’t made any more squeal as I believe it was the upper ballpoint and the lower control arm bushing/s.
Idk but it took a couple
Days for the silicone and grease to work.
After the rain, it stopped for a bit and started up again. So that’s when I figured it had to be something that was easy to fix with either silicone spray or grease.
