    A grinding noise when turning left or right is usually a worn out brake pad or the metal heat shield rubbing on the brake rotor. Check the pad first and look at the rotor for gouging of the metal. If all looks OK there, you can push the metal heat shield back away from the rotor with a long screwdriver through the wheel spokes. It could also be the beginning of a bad wheel bearing but I doubt it. If it was the wheel bearing you would hear the noise go up and down with the speed of the car. Good luck!

    Have you installed oversize tires it so tire could be rubbing fender wells, bearing is a possibility also but they would make nosie all the time.
