Hi there :) Please keep in mind I am not in front of your vehicle to properly diagnose it. With that said it sounds like a bad wheel bearing. The grinding sound and ABS /Trac light are related. When cornering hard or when hauling a load it puts extra pressure on the bearings and can cause them to move internally. The ABS relies on a tone ring to messure how fast the wheel is spinning. If the bearing is bad it lets that ring move thus causing the ABS light to come on and a noise to be heard. So thats where i would start :) Please let me know if you have any more questions and I will be happy to answer them :)
