My Explorer will make a loud grinding noise when
turning the steering wheel sharp. In motion or sitting
It also has a front drivers side rattle and when
slowing down at a higher speed with get louder and
there will even be a bit of a shake. Thoughts?

Is the noise coming from your power steering pump?
Is your car still under warranty? If so you know what to do.
Check the hub bearing also. Don't want to overlook that possibility.
If it makes noise when sitting still I doubt it is the bearings.
Powering steering pump or rack. Check for leaks.
