Grinding feeling in the steering

OK, in the last few days I have noticed a slight grinding feeling in the floor board when I turn the wheel slowly. Its happens in both directions. I think I can slightly hear it over the engine but not much. I can make it do it on a dead steer and moving slowly. At least this is when it is most noticable. I was thinking either ball joints or steering box. Also, sometimes when I turn to full lock i can feel a thud. Anybody have any idea what I'm looking at here? I won't be able to look at the ball joints or anything untill this weekend so I thought I would see if someone could offer some insight before hand. Thanks

Might be wheel hub bearing. I just changed mine because of a grinding sound. Drive straight down the road and turn your wheel back and forth quickly, if the sound stops while doing this it's hub bearings.

What if it only makes the grinding noise when turning in one direction? When I'm driving straight it doesn't make the noise.

^^^Yep. Mine only grinds while the wheels are turning not when going straight down the road. And here is another thing, it only does it when its hot. In the cooler mornings it doesn't do it. By the time I get to work (22 miles) its doing it, and after work while its 90-100 degrees out now.
