Rear wheel grinding noise?

Hello all. So I thought I had posted this a couple weeks ago but my post is nowhere to be found so ill post again. I have an 04' vert with a RSI motor and tt build. Car has been great but recently I noticed when I turn slowly to the right or going straight its fine, but when I turn left I hear a grinding noise in the RR wheel and I can feel it in the butt of the seat.... now in my language what it sounds like and feels like is this..... when you have a brake pad wore down to the rivets and its digging into the rotors, is what it sounds exactly like. I have taken off both rear wheels and the pads are almost new thickness and fine and rotors are clean so ive ruled out the brake system. But without a load on the wheels spinning it on jack stands obviously produces no noise. If anyone has had this happen or what a common cause might be I would appreciate all replies greatly! Thanks much everyone.

Could be a wheel bearing. Most times you won’t feel it by just turning the wheel by hand.

Did you also check the e-brake pads? The stiffness of the cables tend to put pressure on the caliper wearing out the inner pad. Could be inertia when you turn putting extra pressure on the assembly.

Ok guys, i havent forgotten to post an update. So i took off BOTH rear parking brake calipers, as this also allowed me to clean them up and clean wheels and the main calipers, but to no avail left hand turns still sound like brake pad rivets digging into a rotor. I have an appt. monday to have my rear end fluid changed. Im having Amsoil 75-140 and 4 oz. of the fm put in. They are also going to inspect my rear wheel bearings. I will post another update Monday.

When I had the PPI performed on my newly acquired '06 roadster at the Dodge dealership, the Viper tech commented on the grinding noise in the rear, so went ahead and changed the diff fluid and it seemed to fix the issue. I'll report back if I have any other issues or solutions. Curious to hear more feedback from others about this.
