Got the car about a month ago and i hear a grinding noise coming from the left front of the car. It comes and goes. It only makes the noise when im driving. The brake pads are only half gone but there is a bit of rust on the roters but i really dont think its that. Any thing else in that area that may make that noise? Replace the axel so its not that. Any info would help. Thanks!!

Securely jack up the left front side of the car and wiggle the tire at the 12-6 and 3-9 o'clock positions. There should be no obvious movement. This is a very rough check for worn tie rods and bearings. To know for sure you have to check the hub runout.
