GRINDING NOISE

1999 Ford Explorer • 6 cylinder 4WD Automatic • 204,000 miles

Loud grinding noise coming from left front tire on a 1999 ford explorer, I checked pads and rotors to no avail, I see a tear in my cv joint boot but not sure if this would affect it while driving straight as well. I hear the noise no matter what direction I turn, it happens in reverse as well

A CV boot tear would indicated the CV bearings are worn out, while they make more noise when turning, they will make noise going straight if worn badly.
