    When i break i hear a squeak, but i have new pads on them, also when i turn i hear a little squeaking, and my locking hub is warm after a trip down the road, but i just replaced my wheel bearing. What could be causing this? please help me out.

    pads? how you grease that, and when you say grease the bearing you mean under the locking hub cap?

    you put brake grease on the back side of the pads.. slide etc. did you install the wheel bearing? if so did you just toss it in or or did you pack the bearing with grease b4 hand?

    unless you seen the greased bearing with your own eyes you cant say your sure he greased them.. just cause he worked at a stealership doesnt mean he wont make a mistake... not bashing him or nothing.. but thats where i would start... grease the brakes with anti squeal stuff. and re pack/check the bearing for grease. look inside the lock out see if its dry. http://www.automedia.com/Servicing_Wheel_Bearings/ccr20020901wb/1 http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/maintenance/front_end/hub_rebuild/

    you not driving with the hub in the lock position are you? that would really cause it to get hot at highway speeds.

    no but i believe the rotor is transferring a little bit of heat to it
