FRONT LEFT OF CAR MAKES A GRINDING AND RATTLING NOISE

2001 Kia Magentis • 215,233 miles

It started off barely noticable and gradually got worse after roughly 6 hours (not continously driving) it makes a grinding noise while driving a rattling noise when I hit a bump and the noise gets worse with right turns and less bad with left turns.

I would check the wheel bearings and axles.

Well found out the hard way what it was. I was driving and my ball joint went and blew my tire off and pulled the axle out. Thanks for the info.
