Strange Noise

Hello All,

I have this strange grinding noise whenever I turn either left or right. Could it be a problem with the power steering or maybe wheel alignment? Any thought would be appreciated.

Thanks

Miz

Could be power steering pump, whats the fluid level like? or your rotors have a ridge on them or a wheel bearing.

how far do you turn the wheel before it makes the noise? if you crank the wheel all the way before it makes the noise it could be the tires are too wide and the tire is hitting the sway bar... this happened to me and a couple of wheel spacers did the job.
