Grinding noise
 
a few days ago my truck (2005 4.7 4x4) started making a grinding noise when I turned right. Today is started sounding like I was driving over the rumble strips going straight and still makes the grinding noise when turning right.
Just wondering if anybody knows what this is so I can save time and money. I hope that it is not the hub/bearing because its 225.00 but I think it might be the front drivers side axle but wont know for sure until I can tear it done to look.

If I remember correctly, turning right put pressure on the left hub/bearing. Simple test is to lift the truck up and spin the hub at diffter speeds while listening. It should be fairly easy to rotate with no noise. You will have to take the wheel and the rotor off to do this test.

Chances are its the hub. If one is bad, the other isnt that far away.....
