Default Weird scraping/grinding noise when turning right

It makes a noise that sounds like my brakes are scratching when i turn right and go over bumps. (driver side) It's mostly the bumps that make it do that. It will do it when going straight sometimes over bumps. But never turning left.

Wheel bearing? and ideas?

check to make sure the metal dust shield on the brake isnt rubbing on the rotor. Ive seen them rusted so bad that it broke off and wedged itself between the rotor and the back of the caliper. Sounded like a freight train driving down the road

I have the same thing. I'm assuming you have a ls swap from your name, if so, did you happen to change out an axle? I just did and forgot to take the o ring that sits up against the bearing off. I guess they don't fit the ef, just throwing it out there.

freight trains dont sound like that...its more like a stuck hand brake that someone forgot to take off

most likely a dust shield, does it sound metallic? wheel bearings will make a noise that picks up with speed and will do it straight on smooth roads doesnt need to turn or go over bumps to hear it... dust shields are common to get bent close enough to the rotor that turning and bumps will cause them to hit the road and grind but its sounds like thin pieces of metal not like if you where to take a grinder to a piece of rebar

sorry never replied, it's the crank pulley grinding on the radius arm for the front subframe. it happens on big bumps and hard turns. I think it's because I had eBay mounts, mounted the engine too low, i have Hasport mounts in now and it hasn't done it again.
