hi,
have had a metallic grinding noise from the passenger side front wheel for a while now which i can only hear with the window open... it is in tune with the vehicle speed and is more prominent when the brakes are applied... replaced calipers, discs and pads but the issue still remains... when jacked up the wheel does not turn as freely as the other side and sort of makes the noise once per wheel turn and it sounds like it may be coming from the drive shaft... also if both wheels are jacked up they both turn freely and there is no noise.

It's just a guess, but perhaps it's your wheel bearings? Maybe CV joints as a second guess, but that would be much more noticeable when turning than when going straight.
