You've got a worn out CV joint on one of your front wheels. You probably have a CV joint boot that's torn open exposing the joint, causing it to become degraded. It's best to go ahead and buy a whole new axle assembly, and usually cheaper because it's easier for a technician to swap out the entire axle than to install just a new CV joint.

It's actually from where the noise is coming from. Front end or rear end. From engine area or from inside the steering or from brakes.

I have a 2000 volvo xc the steering makes a loud grindy noise when I turn, and it feels likes it tugs a a bit

The steering rack is faulty, by the noise it makes the damage is too great to fix it and you will have to replace it.

ABS light and Traction control light stay on. Vehicle brakes ok, but pedal feels "grindy" intermittently when braking

That "grindy" feeling is when the ABS kicks in. It's only suppose to activate when you slam on the brakes and the wheels would normally lock. Instead, ABS will very quickly pump the brakes on and off, to prevent the wheels from locking (making a giant skid mark) and stopping the car more effectively. Generally this only happens if you slam on the brakes or loose traction due to rain or snow while braking. If this is happening often and the brake light is on, on the dash, then you need to get this checked out by a qualified mechanic ASAP.

My anti lock brake light started coming on when I took left hand turns. It is now coming on when I take left and right turns, every now and then the brakes are not at there full capacity as the brake petal...

This sounds like your cv boots when you take a turn do you hear a clicking sound?. If so that is what it is. If thats the case I would get them repacked soon as possible if not you will have to replace the whole boot or maybe cheaper to replace the whole axle. With your breaks going to the 1/2 way to the floor you either need the brakes bleed or need new brakes. But with you saying they feel grindy you probably need new brakes. Hope this helps.
