A loud sqealing noise coming from right front side. From what I read its my bearings. When I looked and examine, my caliper looks like it is too close to rotor and I believe thats where the noise is coming from. But my wheel is slightly bent inwards whichs makes the caliper and rotor touch. Is this the most likely problem?

It sounds like you need new brakes. The brake pads have a steel sensor that touches the rotor when the pad wears out. Does the noise change when you use the brakes? If so, that is my first guess. A wheel bearing noise will go away when you make turns.

Let me know.

Also, how is the wheel bent?
