This model has a brake shield that may rub during a hard turn. i would also check the rotor bearings as well. check the fender wall for lose plastic wheel cover as well.

That sounds like a cv joint. It is right behind the tire on the end of the axle. It should have a rubber boot around it. I suspect the boot went bad causing you to lose the grease.

Grinding


Check the brakes and make sure the caliper isn't sticking. If OK, then it's probably your wheel bearings.
