yeah it only does it when moving. From a stop there is no sound. but the is no variance with rotational speed. Same sound regardless of wheel rotation.

is it a hovering noise(like the blades on a helicopter), does the noise happen when the car is jacked up? if yes to the hovering noise you may have a flat spot on that particular tire. if yes to the car being jacked up look at replacing the wheel bearing.

no, i know that noise. This sounds like something is rubbing the rotor when i turn left only. high pitches, squealing.

Check to make sure that your brake pads are in the calipers right and the lil clip things are in place, if one of them loose it could make that squealing noise. Also see if your brake caliper is on there right or bent or something along those lines.

next time you have the car jacked up, check the dust shields on the rotors, just pry them away from the rotor abit with a screwdriver.

Already checked the brakes, nothing is rubbing. I can try to pull them apart again and see but i don't get why it would only do it dturning left. They are static and should always make contact if they were making contact

Definitely coming from the drivers side. Doesn't slide like belt squeal either.

Anyone thinking it could be something in the suspension?
