Question: Rubbing -grinding noise when turning

After truck warms -up when turning to right more then left their is a rubbing-grinding noise . But some times it's o.k . Their are times the truck will vibrate. Driving down highway or side streets it is fine.
I have changed the lube in front and back rear-ends and put the additive in.
