Odd noise when turning/braking.
Obviously on my truck, when Im doing 10-15 and turn hard left (90 degree corner, almost full lock on wheel, maybe 1/4-1/3 from stop) Im hearing this odd grinding noise left front wheel. Lug nuts are tight, dosn't seem to be play in the bearing, wondering what else it could be.
CV boots are sealed, no grease or anything any place, all suspension pieces look to be in order, and the funny thing is, its not all the time.
I have a hard time hearing it do to tire and engine noise.
plan on taking it to the shop tomorrow and tearing it apart ( auto craft shop on post 5 bucks and use THEIR tools ;-D )
one other thing is when I had the wheel off today to look at it, the hub turns really hard, I know they dont free wheel, but I really had to push to get it to turn... something in the brakes?

got it all apart this morning, turns out one of the slide pins for the brake calipers was completly seized. broke it loose, cleaned it up with a wire wheel, threw some grease at it, put everthing all back together and it all turns much nicer now.
sad part was when I got back in the truck, I turned the key and click. nothing-nada. battery was dead from having the radio on for 2 hours. threw the tester on it, and the battery was shot. got a jump, ran to autozone, $100 later, nice new autocraft gold with 800 CCA put in and on my merry way.
