Post Strange squeak from rear end

Okay, I just turned 50K on my MY98 RS and there is a squeak coming from what I think is the driver's side rear. Odd thing is, the sound only happens for the first minute or so that the car motion after starting it - then it is gone. The squeaking is rhythmic, but intermittent - is has to be something in the wheel realm...
I had a wheel bearing replaced in the same location about 10K ago, but the sound is different from the "bad bearing" noise.
Any thoughts about what I should do here, I really don't want to take it into the dealership to find out that it needs a bit of oil and 5 minutes of work...

Thanks in advance,
Go Scooby!

The squeak you're describing sounds a lot like either a bad bearing or when the bearing was replaced, they didn't put enough grease... There isn't much else that would cause a squeak there.

Hope it helps!
