Grinding/Rubbing when I turn all the way

My truck ('05, stock tires and suspension) has started making a grinding/rubbing noise that I can feel in the floorboards when I turn the steering wheel all the way. It's more noticeable when I turn left than when I turn right. Other than the dust seals on the axles that have popped off (haven't figured out how to reset them yet) I can't see anything wrong with the front end. I haven't been in a wreck or hit a large bump or anything else that could cause damage. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

Those seals do nothing don't worry about them. Jack up your truck and have someone turn the wheel and see if any steering components are touching. Check out your axle u-joints for signs of wear. Take off your wheels, remove caliper and take out your hub (will be a snap ring holding it) and do some visual inspections.
