Not knowing your mechanical abilities- you may have to feed me more information as I try to help.
Grinding noises can be casued by many things from drive mechanism to braking components. You also mention the right wheel feels wobbly. Is this just a feeling in the steering wheel or have you checked the wheel?
With the little information you have her, let me make a list of potential or likely candidates:
Check that your front brakes are good and that you do not have any warped rotors.
Check that the wheel bearing and CV joint (if it is 4 wheel drive) are all in good condition.
Check ball joints and tie rods.
These would be the best places to start and then report back.
