Grinding noise in front end?

I've got a strange grinding noise comming from the front-end of my '97
expedition. Seems to
only happen when turning corners and accelerating. I've also noticed
that the ride has gotten rougher.

I'm planning on taking it in soon to have it looked at as the problem
seems to have gotten worse lately but trying to get an idea of what I'm
in for first.

Thanks

I should try to explain "grinding noise" i guess.... it's a grinding
noise and a low pitched 'thump thump thump'

it might be that the joints on the front axles are bad.
It might also be that you've got the 4WD activated on dry pavement.
