Rubbing noise when turning

I have a 2005 v6. For a while now I've noticed a rubbing almost a grinding noise coming from my car when I make sharp slow turns. Can't pin point where exactly its coming from. I've taken off both front wheels and looked arround and nothing out of the ordinary. No tire makrs anywhere or anything. Thinking it may be coming from the rear end, possibly the rear diff. I'm really trying to avoid dropping it off at a shop as I'm kinda strapped for funds. Any suggestions on what may be causing this and how to go about fixing? I appriciat any help in this matter and thank you for taking the time to read this.

I'd check for play in the wheel bearings and the bushings/balljoints. Are the tires wearing funny on the front end, that is usually a good indicator of where something is going wrong. It could also be a power steering pump going bad (I don't know if 05 has an electric or a mechanical powersteering pump). But atleast it might give you another area to check.

I did notice a little wear in the tires. very outside edge on both sides. Thats why I thought it was rubbing on something in the wheel well. But my trusty Chiltons troubleshooter pointed towards "possible faulty differential". I'll have to wait untill the weekend to tear it down and play with it some more. All work and no play make me a dull boy. lol

Not to jack … but this AM at the rink parking lot w/ the wheel turned turned full either way … I hearing a new rubbing/grinding noise in the rear end area. I.E., if you make a circle the noise is in one spot of the circle. I had the pinion seal replaced recently. Thanks for any help.

jack up the frt and wiggle your tire. i had the frt bearings go bad on one hub, and i really thought the noise was coming from the rear end trasfering through my lca`s the whole time. didnt catch it till i was replacing the frt rotors and brakes.

05 V6 auto,
