I have a 1992 s-10 blazer, 4wd, I starting hearing a squeak under the car which progressively got worse. I thought it may be the brake pads. I bought and installed new pads on all 4 wheels. The old pads were worn but still had 1/8 inch of material left on them, rotors and drums looked good. When the car has been sitting a while I can drive it for 2 to 7 miles and everything is great, no noise in the brakes or anything, but after a few miles I start hearing a little squeak, which progressively gets worse. If I park again for a while I get the same scenario, no noise for a few miles, then the squeal starts and gets worse as I continue driving. Once the squeal starts it continues whether brakes are applied or not. I can't isolate where the sound is coming from (i think the front), but my guess is it's either the front axles, or rear bearings, possibly a u-joint in drive line, or bearing in the drive train.
