    Sounds like a blown CV joint. Getting a new one is about all you can do, really. :ph34r:

    bad cv joint is more of a constant POP POP POP POP POP but yea that sounds like cv joint, to know for sure take off your tire and check the boot. also another way to check if it is the cv joint, get goin a bit (20 mph) then throw it in neutral and turn whichever way it grinds at, if it still grinds its not the cv joints. cv joints only make noise when the tires are recieving power.

    thanks boys, yeah when the CV joint went on my old subaru it made a po popopopop kinda noise- but you're right about the neutral test- When i'm turning the wheel to the right and put the clutch in, the grinding noise goes away

    the power steering pump would make more of a whineing sound when turning the wheel mostly noticable when stopped

    yeah it's def. not the power steering pump- it's be an axle or in the tranny- so i'll pray i'm lucky and throw in a new axle
