SOURCE: GRINDING IN FRONT END
This sounds like a major problem. I had the same issue with a different truck. I will tell you in all honesty that the front-end is blown. The noise will continue to get worse. Soon it will occur driving in a straight line. The carrier bearings are symptomatic of failure. Its safe to drive on for a while, but in the long run you can eventually snap the front end. But before you go on rebuilding or selling the vehicle drain the fluid and replace with new and see if the problem goes away after driving 8-15 times in a flat parking lot doing figure-eights.

Check your front brakes. You may need to grease the caliper slides and machine or turn the rotor. If the rotor is warped it will cause a vibration in the steering wheel, you'll notice it more under varying braking conditions. The caliper could be sticking which can cause a pull. As for the squeaky rear end, being a car that old its time to replace the rear bushings. If they are greaseable then just regrease them. If you replace them consider going with urethane or polyurethane bushings. They will give a better ride than the stock rubber bushings. If the new ones come with grease fittings make sure you grease them at least twice a year, but at every oil change would be wise.

Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

It could be a number of things, but a common problem with this car is rusty pins in the front end. This is louder when turning. There was a bulletin issued about it.
