[Spridgets] Screeching while turning..

Good morning all,

I had a weird problem yesterday, for no good reason when I turned  
right I got a terrible screeching noise from the left font wheel.  And  
I mean terrible!  Scare the neighbors hide the children terrible.

As I am primarily a front wheel drive guy I would appreciate any  
diagnostic help!

Things I have checked:

tire is not rubbing on anything

there is no backing plate for the discs to rub

there is no "wear indicator" for the discs to make noise

there is no perceptible noise moving forward or turning left.

My first thought is bearings but I have never had this failure mode so  
I'm not convinced..

Thanks all,
