Front End Squeal/Squeaking

When I turn the steering wheel during some slow turns (<20 mph), I get this odd squeaking noise. Almost like metal grinding.

Occurs at the front end, obviously.

Any ideas?

Yes. Lots thanks for asking. L.o.l.
Have you checked the front end? Front driveshaft? Front brakes? Fluid levels? Etc. etc.

Can you reproduce it by turning the steering wheel when standing still or does it only make the noise while moving?

Does it only happen when you turn left, right, or either way?

Is it associated with any sort of vibration?

Probably not the driveshaft or brakes as they shouldn't articulate when you turn.

Could be ball joints.
Could be tie rod/drag link.
Could be CV axle.
Could be steering pump.
Could be steering gear box.

Do a visual inspection of all those components. If your ball joints/tie rod/CV boots are torn, any one of those components could be failing and in need of replacement.

It's probably one of my suspension components like Bosnian mentioned. It occurs when I move the steering wheel. Not sure if it is limited to the truck's movement or not.

Thanks.
