i get a noise like a low grinding or vibration coming from the front end when i first start to turn the wheels and drive any help would be appreciated.

brake pads are worn out and metal to metal is causing your rotors to warp.

Is it kinda a THUNK noise?

I have the same problem with turning the wheels and a thunking sound comes from the stering.

I'm going to be trying to replace the lower control arms and see if it makes a differnce.

no it's not the brakes i just replaced them and it's not a thunk it's a low rubbing or grinding sound

Do you have traction control? If you do, try it with the trac switch turned off.

no i don't have that either iwas thinking either a bearing or cv joint

Could be CV.
Inspect the boots for cracks and grease slung out.
Lastly check the cradle bushings. If the noise is bad when accel. then they could be bad.
