another axle question

but.... this time it's different...it started yesterday i think, been hearin this grinding sound (almost sounded like the brake pads were gone, or sand in between the pad n rotor) well anyways...im drivin and it starts to grab and pull the the pass. side. i pull in the drive way to inspect... and the front pass. tire (top of it) is leaning in towards the motor.. and im picking up these little steel pellet type things all up n down the driveway.... anyone have an idea what might have broke? called my buddy deryck (zainyd) and he's stoppin over later to check it out... but we'll see.. hope its nothing to expensive and nothing in the Diff. got f'ed.
