AnswerThere are a couple of things... If it happens when you are turning and the sound gets louder then it is your CV Joint that needs to be replaced. If the grinding noise is only when you break then it is your break pads and they need to be replaced. If it is just when you drive and is pretty loud then it is your wheel bearings. Don't get bent out of shape if you replace one wheel bearing and the noise is there... it just means you probably should replace all the wheel bearings (better anyways).

Either way you need to have your brakes and wheel bearings inspected immediately. This can be very dangerous. Any decent mechanic can find the problem and repair it.
