sqeeking front end ?

hi there everyone, and a happy xmas to one and all of you. I need some help please if poss or if anyone knows what problem i might have. I have just bought myself a 93 wrx import and for the last two weeks its been a pure joy to drive and own,but now i have this terrible noise from the front passenger side wheel. It started about five days ago with a mild squeek when i turned the steering wheel but now it is unbearale and embaresing. it dosnt go when i brake or push the clutch down and it seems worse under load.I was told it could be a wheel bearing or even the strut,i dont know. Has any one got any clues for me please,i have a technics turbo gti golf also but sadly i love the wrx so much the gti dosnt get driven anymore, What a fantastic car the wrx is, anyway thanks to you allm mike

First check it's not debris jammed in the disc/caliper, if not then it does sound like a wheel bearing.....
All the best

Not too sure about 94 Model but My00 classic Brake pads had the spring wear indicator on them and this squeaked like hell when driving. Its just a metal spring clip that shows when the pads need changing. And it shows this by a very loud squeaking.
It was only on one side as well.
New pads and discs cured mine as the discs were done anyway.
