Default Grinding Noise

When i turn, the front right wheel grinds, or something up there. Sounds like maybe a rock or something. Anyone might know what the problem is?

It sounds like one of your Constant Velocity(CV) Joints bearings are shot. You might want to look under the car to see if the rubber booties that protect the bearings are not torn. If one of the CV Joints is bad, it might be easier(cheaper) to replace the half-shaft than repair the CV joint itself.

You know, I have that same exact problem, the right front wheel makes a grinding noise... I was told, [and assumed], that it was grinding against the wheel well, but it'* not bad... Now thoguh I have reason to go take it to my friend and see if he can do anything with it, although I highly doubt he can. :(
