My car is grinding when I turn corners and a bit when I take off. It could be the CV axle, but I want to be sure before I order a new one. How would I check that to be sure? Tie Rods seem tight. Could it be another issue?

sounds like a hub bearing is bad an axel will make a clicking noise

No noise at road speed just when turning or pulling out?

jack up front end, test turn side to side. if it clicks or pops, most likely cv joint. if you end up replacing one, replace other also. both under same stress, wear ratio would be the same.
get an insp to make sure of issue before throwing parts at it
