    check your tyre pressures
    check your driving

    what tyres are you running, as some will squeal more than others?

    mine was doing the same, fine in a straight line but turning the wheel and it was horrid lol, took it to 2 garages to get independant "diagnosis" and they both said it was the brakes (i knew they were low) and the bearings were worn hence the squelling noise. maybe worth checking them aswell.

    both front discs and pads, the left more so and it corresponded to the squeeling as it is alot worse when i turn left not too bad when turning right. to check the bearings just hold the rim/tyre over the top and push and pull the wheel there should be any "clicking" or play in the wheel.
