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.

Do you
have the same problem?

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.
