Have your front axles and wheel bearings checked.

No not yet. It just started yesterday and money is tight right now I was hopeing it was something I could do myself. But if we are talking axles and bearings think im over my head already lol. Thanks at least I have a direction to look. I was thinking it could be the front axles but I didnt think about the wheel bearings.

Well look for torn rubber boots and greas sprayed from them if it is it won't last along time. Especially ifyou already hear grinding. It could be your brakes as well.
