Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

if you jack up the rear axle and spin the tire do you hear the grinding noise? Have you located where the noise is coming from?

It sound like when you torun avast iron drum on a lath

Can you duplicate the noise if you get someone to put it in gear and run it up to 10mph? The first step is to determine if you have a bad wheel bearing or a brake pad rotor issue..

sound like in right rear housing
Expert:  Brad replied 10 months ago.

If you remove the brake caliper and brake pads do you still hear the noise?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I'll have to do that next how ever rotor is not scored
Expert:  Brad replied 10 months ago.

If you still hear the noise when the rotor is removed then it's most likely a bad wheel bearing.. Make sure the backing plate isn't hitting the rotor.
