03 GT grinding noise front end

When turning left or right I can hear like a metal grinding noise from the front end. Only happens when I turn either direction. Driving is fine.

Lift the front wheels off of the ground and check the wheel bearings for any play. And everything else while you are at it! If you can't find anything obviously wrong, remove the front wheels and give everything a thorough inspection.

Sounds like a bad wheel hub assembly or both of them

Alright, so what I end up doing was replacing both ball joints, inner and outer tie rods. Little over 117K miles and none has been replaced until now. Add a finish touch of a new radio and speakers and done!
