On my 97 explorer i have a grinding noise coming from the passenger front end. on 1997 Ford Explorer

Noise isn't always there, brakes are new.When it happens if i stop and turn steering wheel all the way to the right and move the noise goes away. At first i thought it was a bearing but it would seem like it would do it all the time not just intermittently.Any thoughts would be helpful.

may be the backing plate for the brake rotor rubbing. need to pull wheel off and check.

Thanks for the response,i removed the backing plate and still have the problem. I'm going to try a new bearing/hub and hopefully that cures it.
