Hello.
Whenever I turn left or right I hear a "Grinding" noise - it sounds like someone dragging a drumstick over an old fashioned washboard. I've been hearing that noise for 1 year plus.

Recently I've also been having trouble with the passenger side wheel tugging to the right for awhile, then it stops; like it is rubbing against somthing that is forcing it right. It is also making a sound like it is rubbing on something. It doesn't happen constantly; only occasionally.

Are these separate problems? I've been told the following things are responsible for the problem and need replacing: Axle, Bearings, Tie Rod, CV Joint, CV Boot.

PS - I just found out from the previous owner the CV boot has been cracked for 3+ years.
Do you
have the same problem?

What I can tell you, is any binding or noise needs to be checked, it sounds like both cv-axles and ball joints, the pulling if when braking, could be the calipers up front.
