I have developed a grinding noise when turning left. It is not very loud (a=
t least not yet) and I only heard it when I had the window down the other d=
ay. It really doesn't seem to be load dependent. I did some swerving down t=
he street and the loading/unloading really didn't get the noise to pop up. =
It really seems to be dependent on the angle of the wheels. When only turni=
ng the wheels a little bit, no noise. But if I make a tight turn I can hear=
 the grinding noise. If the grinding were constant regardless of turn angle=
 I would suspect a wheel bearing. But I am thinking more along the lines of=
 a CV joint or something in the steering rack. Anybody had this symptom? An=
y ideas?
