It needs to be looked at right away.It could be your brake pads are totally worn out and they are grinding on the front rotors It could also be a bad C.V. shaft or hub assembly.I'm betting on brakes.Don't be surprised if they want to replace the rotors,the brake pads,and possibly even the calipers.They should be able to tell you whats going on within 15 minutes of taking off the front tires.good luck
sounds like possible brake job if the truck didn't drive differently or you can feel light vibrations on the steering wheel...either way could be costly depnding on if you know how to change your brakes yourself :)
I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.
Get your brakes inspected - the grinding noise may be the front disc brake pads, which have worn out. Several national chains offer free estimates for brake repairs. They will also check the other front end components, which could be causing the noise. Hope this helps...
I have a 97 ford explorer sport 4x4. When i drive at a constant speed it's fine but when i let off the gas I hear a grinding noise. if i put in nutral as soon as i hear it the noise quits areif I shoot the gas to it it quits. What could it be?
My feeling is that you did not use a high quality pad like the Bendix or wagner thermo quiets and the rotors likely need surfacing even if they are new they can be warped due to the way they are stored. Good Bendix pads for this vehicle retail for around 75.00 or more
