Grinding noise in the front end of a 96 Cherokee laredo

I have a 96 Laredo that has a grinding noise in the front passenger side. No turning or braking problems, just a grinding that gets louder as I go faster. Can I hope that it's just wheel bearings?

This is a hand on fix
no web bunny on earth can do this. why ask>?
and if i do, it delays the fix. and possible danger that...
no you can not hope, only FATE rules earth and entropy.
take the car to service and find the cause.
it can be bad caliper or pads, or stuck slider in caliper
or a 2x4 hit the brake backing plate, a 5min fix.
why guess, and worse why drive a dangerous car.
why delay?
ID assume the worse, its brakes or the suspension i bad.
all very dangerous.
get it inspected by live living humans.

sounds like you have a problem with one of your lines on your power steering or one of its components. the grinding noise could also be one of your pulleys that have gone bad too. check your steering assemby gear box.

Small things first.Check your belt and also the pre-tensioner.Try turnind the air-con off and try it.These things can squeal their head off if it's the problem.Check these things 1st just to elimenate them from the process.It's very likely a belt problem with the symptoms you gave.Hope this helps.
(make sure all fluids are good,e.g. power/steer etc.)

SOURCE: 96 jeep grand cherokee laredo popping/grind noise when turning l

Ifound the same condition in the rear end of my 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with 4.0 HO L-6. I opened up the differential and removed the spider gears and axles to get the components out for inspection. I discovered that of the two
clutch packs that are on either side of the axle housing behind the side/axle
gears, the drivers side clutches had a huge break in the main washer "HUGE"
that is directly behind the side/axle gear. Fluid was not unusually dirty but
does show alot of silver clouding from the loss of metals due to the clutches
slipping and grinding when that crack would allow contact loss. Hope that helps

Unit bearing is bad on one side or another. You have to raise the front of the vehicle, remove the wheels, calipers, rotors, everything down to the unit bearing. Turn both carefully by hand and you should be able to tell which one is bad.
