Q: Grinding and squeaking noises from front end

asked by on

I have grinding sounds that i believe is the passenger ball joints but then i had this squeaking sound that sounded like metal on rubber from the drivers side only makes the squeak when i turn but grinds all the time and grinds worse going around turns. I checked for something touching the tire but found nothing even when wheels were turned each way but when driving i hear the squeak and crunching sound that i believe is the passenger ball joints i am unsure why the driver side front tire sounds like there is metal grinding against it or if it is the passenger side and just sounds like drivers side. It started making the sound a couple days ago and i drove 100 miles and started hearing the crunch louder and then back 100 miles and now squeaking and constant crunching
