It has to be related to either a hub bearing or something with the axle. My first suspect is a hub bearing since the noise is heard on turns and braking. Do me a favor. Safely lift and support the front of the vehicle. Place your hands at 12 and 6 oclock. And wiggle the wheel back and forth checking if you feel a clunk or if there is noticeable play. Also, do the same thing at 3 and 9 oclock to see if you feel anything. It shouldn't be grinding. Especially if brakes were just done.
Here are the directions from the manual for checking. The three attached pictures correlate with these directions. Also, the last picture shows bearings for both 2wd and 4wd. Your vehicle will have the sealed wheel hub bearing.
Raise the vehicle until the front tires are off the floor.
Make sure the wheels are in a straight forward position.
Make sure the wheel rotates freely and that the brake pads are retraced sufficiently to allow free movement of the tire and wheel assembly.
Spin the tire by hand to check the wheel bearings for roughness.
3. Grip each front tire at the top and bottom and move the wheel inward and outward while lifting the weight of the tire off the front wheel bearing.
4. If the tire and wheel (hub) is loose on the spindle, does not rotate freely, or has a rough feeling when spun, carry out one of the following:
On vehicles with inner and outer bearings, Inspect the bearings and cups for wear or damage. Adjust or install new bearings and cups as necessary.
On vehicles with one sealed bearing, install a new wheel hub. Refer to the appropriate workshop manual for the service procedures.
Let me know what you find.
