Iced today Driver side front wheel squeaking or scraping?

Passed couple days when i get in in the morning ill be leaving my house and hit a couple bumps and hear this squeak/scraping noise coming from my front. Today is happened all the way into work. Just wondering if its my shock? Something obviously is wrong but is the issue happening because its freezing outside or is this an issue thats gonna stay making that noise till i fix it?

Does the noise change with wheel speed?

Probably because it's at/below freezing outside. If you want to be sure, put it in the air and/or locate the source of the noise with the car off.

Does it stop when you step on the brake?

Unfortunately its pretty much winter here so it may come down to that. Thanks though!

The rear problem could be a wear Indicator scraping or a small rock wedged in between a pad and rotor. Brake pads new? Old? If a rotor or caliper is out of whack, it can cause the pads to wear unevenly, resulting in uneven pad wear. Need to inspect the brake really good. Look over everything. All of them. The other noise coming from the front? I believe u said before, could be anything, spring, strut, strut mount. If that noise isn't affected by stepping on the brake, then most likely it's not a brake issue.

Yep, you will need to get her up in the air and look around for awhile. Move things, spin the tires and turn the steering wheel. A friend can really help out by setting in the car turning the steering wheel and applying the brakes and so-forth Make sure the car is secured correctly with jack stands on a level surface..
