Could be as simple as the tire rubbing on the inner fender well liner. Rotor rubbing on the dust shield, a bad wheel bearing(s). Start the car turn the wheel all the way to the right and look in and under the wheel well with a good flashlight. See if anything is touching. Tire, dust shield ect.

It may be the brake pads getting down to the "replace me please" point. To check the wheel bearings, jack the car's front tire in the air and wiggle the tire from side to side. If it wiggles, it is time to replace the wheel bearings. Both sides at the same time. If it is rubbing, you will hear it causing a rubbing sound. When checking the wheel bearings, turn the wheel all the way to where you hear the sound. Then rotate the wheel and see if the sound is still there and try to isolate the noise. Make sure you are on level surface and block the rear tires if you jack the car. Jack stands would also be advisable. It hurts when the car drops and your hands are pinched. My money is on either the pads or bearings. Pads gets top money.

It was a loose passenger side tie rod (inter and outer) with stripped threads----replaced. Also replaced left side wheel bearings. Thanks for the help!
