Front end grinding help needed

I am new to the site so thanks in advanced for any help. I just bought a 2008 crew cab lariat 4x4 6.4 with 27000 miles with that being said when turning left i am getting a grinding noise when i turn right there is nothing. Could this be a hub or hub bearing? It's quiet when going straight.

Does it have oversized tires? Could they be rubbing on the frame or wheel well? Maybe a bad u-joint, usually when the bearings go bad, you hear it all the time.

Take a good look at the u-joints for any movement. You can probably get a long screwdriver in there or a prybar and try to wiggle them at all. Any movement is bad. Look to see if they are greaseable, that maybe all they need.

How long have you had it? Maybe you can take it to them and they will repair it? With 27000 miles you shouldn't have these problems but it is always possible. If the person before you beat the crap out of it, it could be. Have someone go in the truck and turn the steering wheel back and forth a little (you can do it without the engine running) and just see if any other parts (tie rod ends, centerlink, pitman arm) seem to have play in them, maybe there are multiple things going bad. Its hard to say without seeing it for myself.
