    Sounds like you need your traction controll module checked.

    Your traction control not only keeps your wheels from spinning out of control,but also helps your vehicle from to much slippage. If there is grinding, you may want to get your brakes checked as well.

    There is a chance that they could be causing the grinding, I would have your garage check that as well.
