I'm not sure of anything being common, but some more details would probably help someone who has deeper knowledge of front end issues. But welcome to DF!

jpitts2980,

Welcome to the forum!

I'm sorry to learn of the grind noise you're experiencing. When did you first notice the noise? Did it appear suddenly, or was it heard first when going over larger bumps and became more frequent?
