Default grinding while turning

Ok so my 04 2WD is acting up. Had it aligned six months ago. Recently it started making a grinding noise while turning right, kinda like when a front wheel drive car has bad half axles.
Anyhow now the drivers front tire is wearing really bad on the outside corner.

Any ideas? It has original front end and wheel bearings. Planning on rebuilding the front end and replacing the wheel bearings and brakes because they all have 170k miles on em but it has me curious.

Sounds like a bad bearing to me.
