Default Wheel/Brake Noise

Hey Everyone,
New to the forum, and have a question I would love to get an answer or even ideas on. I have an '06 Ram, and there is a pretty loud, and annoying, squeal coming from what sounds like the front drivers side. When I apply the brakes, it almost goes away completely. The faster I am going, the louder it is. It is not an intermittent sound, it is constant. The dealer I have been working with has had it 3 times and keeps telling me they can't find anything. Any help would be very much appreciated!

Id guess it's your brake pads being worn out. Maybe a wheel bearing, not sure the noise would go away when you hit the brakes though if that was the case.

Take a good look at the caliber and the bracket, I looked at mine today and I had a bolt missing, which meant just a free floating caliber
