Grinding noise

Curious to see if anyone else had this happen to them. I have heard a grinding noise from the front driver side when braking, but only and I mean only, when turning right and the suspension compresses.
For example, turning right from the street into a deep driveway when still braking hard.(a-holes tailing me on a busy street)
It started off with a noise that sounded like ABS kicking in but now it's a grind?
Doesn't happen any other time. I've pulled the wheel and brakes have good pad and rotors look good.

Any ideas?

Maybe your tire rubbing the bumper or frame?

I thought that at first, but it sounds like metal on metal.. Plus I am on stock tires for the moment. Although it could be I can't see any evidence on any of the plastic of anything rubbing.

If the axle or swaybar isn't centered, the upper link bolt can rub on the coil bucket.

ESP?

I was reading other forums and noticed others getting the same thing? When the ESP kicks in does it make a grinding type noise. I haven't been able to replicate the issue with the exception of making hard right turns while braking and compressing the suspension.. it's the weirdest damn thing I've ever experienced in a vehicle
