Default Grinding type of noise at low speeds

Hi everyone, so since I trust everyone's judgement on this Forum(Jeepforum is questionable), today I was driving home from the firehouse and heard a noise coming from the front passenger side, it seemed like grinding but it was at low low speeds, I would say no more then 10 mph and it stops once the Cherokee comes to a stop. I'm thinking it might be wheel bearings but I'm not sure. If anyone could point me in the right directions and if anyone has build threads on repairing them, that would be great, thanks.

Matt

well the wheel bearings could cause this to check jack up the truck and try to shake the wheel it shouldnt shake and the bearings arent repairable theyre unit bearings just replaceable theyre like 75-100$ depending on where you go but i would also check your brakes before you go replaceing things just make sure everything looks good
