Squeak Squeak Squeak

I just found this forum! Good to be here!
i have developed a squeak that is consistent with tire rotation. At slow speed appears to be left rear. Pulled and cleaned thew brakes... squeak squeak.. Jacked up to take load off and ran in gear..NO squeak! There is a double cardan DS , but has been in over a year. my last though is axle bearing. Can i get some of your thoughts? 06 rubi, 33" KMII OME lift, 1" body lift.

Got to be an axle bearing if it's not making the noise with weight on it.

Check the brake shield, it might be bent and rubbing against the rotor. It is only made out of sheet metal so it's not all that hard to bend so it rubs the rotor and squeaks like crazy. It happened to me and I was getting frantic after a while of checking the usual suspects until I happened to notice the bent brake shield.
