Squeaky tire

My front driver side tire has been making some squeaking sounds everytime it rotates. As soon as I press the brake it stops, however as soon as I release the brake it resumes again. Any ideas what this may be and how to fix it?

I replaced brake pads and that didn't seem to help

Mine is doing the exact same thing. It's your wheel bearing for sure.

Are those easy fixes? Any new parts required or just tightening up a few loose things?

You will need a new hub bearing assembly and replace it. Do a search im sure there is a write-up on the forum somewhere
Not this forum but here's a write-up http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f140/...sembly-377533/

Any way it could maybe be a bad u-joint or anything like that? A few similar write-ups I found had a few people mentioning the U-joint

It could be if you think it is the frontshaft drive-shaft remove it and see if the squeak is still there. Also could be your axle u-joint

A friend is confident that I need to replace my front wheel hub assembly. Anyone have good step by step instructions maybe with pictures for me to use? I'm new to the DIY part of this and am going to need some help.

You will need to take of the axle nut. And will require a torque wrench that can go up to 175ft/lbs. I can swap out a wheel bearing and knuckle in under 30 min after all the times I have had to do it recently. If it's your first time I bet it would take you an hour or more. You don't have to remove the steering links or the knuckles, you don't even have to pull the axle shaft out. Though It would be a opportune time to change out the shaft u-joint.

Also the wheel bearings are pretty pricey. Expect to spend $75 to $125 depending on what brand and where you get it.
