Chirping noise while driving

For I while I've had an annoying chirping noise that sounds like a bird or something. It is speed related like the faster I go the faster the noise. Most noticeable with windows down coming from right side, goin anywhere from 15-50 mph. It's more consistent when turning left or even just putting a little more weight on right side by swerving a little. When driving straight it's hit and miss but I think bumps in the road make it chirp too. When breaking almost all noise disappears. Break pedal does not vibrate so I doubt it's the rotors I've had all 4 wheels off 3 times greased everything with no luck. Any ideas?

Sounds like the front right wheel bearing.

Check the wheel bearings for any play.

Or if its a higher milage vehicle, just replace both sides and do the brakes too if they weren't done recently. Front wheel bearings are cake, you just need a big goddamn breaker bar and a 36mm hardened deepwell socket. You can get them at any parts store.

Ok thanks for the replies. Wheel bearings did cross my mind so will replace them in near future.

They're a wear item just like everything else. OEM is usually good for 100k. Parts store replacements... I've had good luck with in past vehicles and my Expy as well. 50k so far on a generic rockauto front left wheel bearing and its dead silent. Just did the back left 5k ago with another generic and its fine. Have 2 more in boxes for the right side waiting to go on.
