    Don't turn right
    check your front right brake pads for rocks or some other obstruction
    take two aspirin and call me in the morning

    There is little clips that hold the brake pad in the caliper bracket. Mine are doing it...

    Just an idea.

    Calipers slightly rubbing the inside of the wheel. Had investigated this squeaking on mine, i had it mostly while turning to the left, and when i finally decided to pull off the calipers and see what is rubbing on the rotors...there was nothing even close to touching the rotor.
    So after more investigation, there was very slight rubbing marks on the inside of my wheels. So got the grinder out and took off some of the edges...now no more sound coming from that wheel.

    Good job man!
    Sometimes these little things can take a lot of effort to find
