And now what was a quiet truck has a passenger front squeek every time the wheel revolves. More speed=faster squeel. Rediculous. What is causing it? Warped rotor?

Maybe the backing plate was bent a bit, and is hitting the rotor [rotor has to have a slight warp, or the mounting surfaces are not perfectly clean]. But is there and shims or sauce on the back of the pads? I would not install them without shims or brake squeal sauce. This is my first guess.

IF the rotor is warped you wouldn't hear a squeal, there are little metal clips between pads and the caliper mounts that would cause a squeal only, only if your brakes were changed recently(it could be a little off in fitment. Could be the hub/wheel bearing as well?

double check the brake pad indicator tabs. May have been bent during install or while in the packaging.

How about jack it up, spin the wheel and find out the cause. It will take less time and be infinitely more helpful than all of us speculating on a cause.

caliper clip was rubbing wheel. Had the bearings repacked today at Kanrock and they fixed it. No biggie!
