Hi there:

If you're hearing a grinding noise, it's most likely going to be coming from the front brakes. If the brakes are grinding, then you'll likely need to have the rotors resurfaced or replaced as well. Before you submit a price quote request, you might want to have a professional mechanic complete a brake system inspection; so they can determine if there is damage to front and rear brakes.
