what i believe is my wheel bearing... i think is squealing. want to get your opinion though. My brakes are defently bad and need to be replaced. possiably to the point of no brake pad at all. while i believe at all driving speeds i hear a squeal. slowing down it comes to more of a brushing sound (like im braking with bad breaks, but not applying pressure to the brakes). I'm just not hoping its not my axle again. Oh yeah while squealing at higher speeds the squealing gets lighter, and when i apply my brake the squealing disappears.

Let me know; Thanks

If the whole wheel(s) gets hot you have badly stuck pistons in your calliper(s)
You can help freeing them by using a syringe and put brake fluid in under the dust protecting rubber gaskets on each piston :)
Could allso just be your brake pads that squeals = renew them

Dampen a rag with gasoline, it works great and it will evaporate quickly.
