If your wheel bearings are loose as you turn the disc slightly rubs the caliper and makes a squeek.

Especially if its a squeek squeek squeek at the same rpm as the wheels.

i yer and it sounds like its coming from the left side at the back so it might be wheel bearing. hope so thats easy enough to fix...you dont think its low diff oil or anything?..and would worn shocks or mounts or any other things only squeek on acceleration out of courners? it dosnt squeek over bumps or stops or starts.
and also wouldnt my wheel wobble when i shake it, as in, wouldnt there be play in there if i grab the wheel and shake @#$% out of it, tho i can barely get my hands round the wheels due to bugger all clearnace.

Do you have IRS or solid rear - both have different squeak sources.

its got IRS
In that case it could be a bad CV joint or the wheel bearing ...neither are cheap.... check by jacking the wheel up and checking for side play in the bearing and the same for the CV joints.
