Question about 1998 Nissan Altima
HEAR A GRINDING NOISE COMING FROM FRONT PASSENGER SIDE OF CAR... NOT RELATED TO ENGINE REVS.... CHANGES WHEN LASY TURNS ARE BEING MADE AT HWY SPEEDS..... BUT NO WOBBLING OR UNUSUAL VIBRATION FELT IN STEEREING
I had the same thing which progressed to the steering wheel skaking. My suggestion is have the hub assembly checked out. I replaced mine from a salvage yard for $75 and it took one hour to fix. The hub assembly, berrings and knuckle are all one piece. Hope that helps you. It sounds exactly like mine did at first!

I would suspect the wire wear is uneven from your description the sound increases with speed. it should be quite smooth when you run your fingers through it on inspection. some oem goodyears are prone to this esp when you don't rotate your tyres. good luck!

CV joint has gotten debris and moisture inside. The CV boot is bad and not protecting the joint. Now its metal on metal grinding. This happens when turning as there is more pressure on the joint. Please fix this ASAP as it can be dangerous to drive on a bad CV joint. While I have seen people drive with a bad CV joint for over 4k miles, it is NOT recommended!
