Question about 2007 Ford Edge SEL Plus
New tires on in January....notices a whinning noise associated with the speed of engine/tires. alignment is good. No dashboard emergency lights on. This morning it made a loud grinding (metal) noise and seemed to have a bit of trouble accelerating.
Have the brake pads checked, if they are ok you may have a faulty wheel bearing.

The hub bearing is usually pressed in and can be pressed too much and damaged.
Also,you may want to check to see if your brakes are worn out on the front which could also be making this noise.

Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

The sway bar linkage probably came undone on one of the sides. Wikipedia has a picture of what your sway bar linkage may look like:
That is a picture of a Porsche sway bar, but the idea is the same. Make sure all bolts are tight and that one end is not missing the linkage that connects it to the spring/strut. The grinding of the brakes may be the sound of the linkage piece touching the rotor. Sway bar is a logical solution to both issues.
If that doesn't fix the issue, put the front end of the truck on blocks or jack stands and have somebody wiggle the tire up/down and side to side while you inspect the mechanical components underneath. Other things to check may be the ball joints, tie rod ends and suspension bits.
