Broken Bronco (Hub?)

My Bronco is making a noise that is coming from the right front wheel. It makes a loud scraping noise(metal to metal) at low speeds(<10 MPH) and turns to a quiet sweaking 30 and above. The noise intensifies at low speed sharp turns. Sometimes I will start my car and there won't be any noise and sometime I will be driving and the noise will just go away. Could it possible be the hub? Any suggestions or plan of attack that I should take?

Re: Broken Bronco (Hub?)

Could be a hub, but what popped in my mind was front brakes, I'd pull the wheel off and inspect everything first, then if you have the means to pull the hub out, do, just to inspect.
Usually the hubs make a clicking noise not a metal to metal srcaping noise.

Sounds like a brake pad to me. That's the first thing I'd check.

Turns out it was the cover plate for the rotor was bent and rubbing. Problem solved. Thanks for input.
