i have just changed the bearings of both my front wheels yesterday n changed the 4x4 vacuum lines to thicker ones just in case but after i went out of the garage the tires are making a squeaking noise with or without the 4x4 engaged i thought it might be cuz the bearing just got changed so i cruised around in it for a while the sound goes away at high speed but at cruising speed its there and very noticeable.... i tried driving with the 4x4 engaged but it just made the sound way worst ... what could be the problem???

Body Damage is Cool
While you had it apart did you look at your brakes. Your ware indicaters could be making the squeak.

Could be that you over tightened the bearings.

UPDATE... problem solved the left wheels outer oil seal was the problem... althought it was brand new its diameter was 1mm off so it was touching the inner wheel axel making this squeacking noise i just had it replaced with my old one and the sound disappeared...
