Wheel bearing

Do you have stock height on the vehicle and recommended size tires? If you have custom rims, do they have an off set placing the tires wider so it may rub on a fender? If you stock, it may be the wheel bearing gone bad. You have a heavy vehicle and depending on the driving history, this is a 95% correct diagnose. It is something in the steering geometry causing the grinding sound. Jack the vehicle up so the tire will turn freely. Please have the SUV blocked and engine off. Put it in neural if it is a 4 X 4. Turn the front wheel and listen. By turning, I mean to rotate it round and round. If it is a wheel bearing, you'll hear a grating sound. Do you have enough full power steering pump fluid?
