Front tire grinding

Ok so I have noticed a grinding noise coming from my left front tire. It only happens when I turn to the right. I have been told that I need to replace the entire hub but where it only grinds when turning in one direction I think maybe replaceing either the inner and outer bearings in the hub. Someone let me know, thanks.

2wd or 4wd? 2wd you should be able to change the bearings, 4wd you'll have to swap the hubs, as they're pressed together as one unit.

BTW, I'm not100% sure on this.

Unit Bearing means no rebuilding....I'm actually replacing both of my wife's Sunday...on the bright side it's quicker and easier than hubs!

What I meant was no rebuilding of your existing unit bearing, only replacing of the whole unit.
