Hi. Did you check the front wheel bearing for play? They are common to cause grinding when turning.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
There is play between the rotor the bearing and the axle. so what do I do?

One more thing when I put it in reverse it grinds real loud when I first start to move and then the stops I cant reverse I have to move forward and back up again

Ok. First any wheel bearings that have play or are grinding will need to be replaced. If there is play in the wheel you need to have the bearing replaced. The bearing is a press in style. You need to remove the knuckle from the vehicle and then press out and in a new bearing.
