Grinding Noise when Turning

My Taco only has 7,000 miles and I just noticed last night when I turned fully I heard a grinding sound from the front end. Before I take it to the dealer, does anyone know what it could be? Thanks, Chris

I haven't had the 4WD on for about 3 weeks. So yes I have been driving in 2WD.

I think I have the same, though it's more like a rumbling. I have to be turned fully to the left then accelerate from zero and it rumbles for a second or 2. I asked the stealer about it a few weeks ago and he couldn't find anything.

Not really a whine ... definitely a grinding rumbling sound ...

I am doubt it is the bearings. I only hear that sound when turning at full cock ..... going slowly. Also - it only happens when I turn left

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Exact same noise coming from mine......I'm lifted now but noticed it when bone stock.Also seems to only be coming from the drivers side front,turning left,full lock.....Grinding or rattling describes it best.

I had the same problem when I put new rims on. Check the dust guards sometimes they grind against the wheel when turning.
