I am hearing a grinding noise when I go around a curve, not really when I make a turn. I am wondering if it is the CV joint? How do I check to see if this is the problem? Also is this an easy enough fix that a novice can take and do?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have looked at the CV joint boot and there are no rips or tears in it. I also don't see any grease around any other parts. Could it be wheel bearings? Or any thing else?

If clucking as you turn suspect CV axle
if humming (air plane )as you driving and get louder as you go faster if you try and turn a bit noise fade away or change
