You're either rubbing, or the boot is either torn or needs to be replaced

It could be the Constant Velocity joint, which is a type of assembly that allows power to be transmitted through a wide range of angles, and is a standard component in the axels of many cars. If the thudding keeps up whenever the wheel is turned, the CV joint may need to be replaced.

What is the grinding sound from the front of 1998 Plymouth Breeze that changes when the steering wheel is turned if it is not u-joints?

most likely it is a wheel bearing on its way out. If you turn left and the sound disappears, its most likely either going to be the outer bearing on the left wheel or the inner bearing on the right wheel. Sound disappearing when turning to the right is just the opposite: outer right, inner left. It can be both but not usually.
