Grinding when turning and braking but its not rotors

Asked by Feb 20, 2017 at 11:55 PM about the 2013 Dodge Charger SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Bright my 2013 charger in for a recall.  I asked them to see
if they can tell me why it's grinding.  It happens only when i
brake and turn LEFT at the same time. (Its not brakes or
rotors).. they seemed like they forgot to check when i
asked.  Then he goes oh uhhhh its the strut tensioner... we
can fix for $700.... thanks but no thanks buddy! So let me
ask you guys.  wouldn't tensioner with the ball joint  make
more of a clunk? I don't see how that would create a
grinding, scraping sound.
Anyone have any ideas please?

How about the wheel bearings?

Backing plate for brakes? Calipar not mounted correctly. If it has anything to do with the strut you should be able to pull the wheel off and see for yourself or at very least the shop you took it to should be able to put it on a rack and show you the problem.

Would wheel bearings make a grinding noise?
