Check all your bushings, especially the rack end bushing. If your car is old (chances are it is) then you may as well just replace all the bushings.
You might also want to look for warped rotors, but the metal-on-metal noise makes me think bushings.

Pproblems like thes are the second worst thing to fix on a car. Electrical gremlins being first.

There are tons of things that can cause this.
Bad bushings, bad ball joints, bad tie-rods, bad brakes...
You will need to inspect each of those things for play. Anything over a couple of millimeters is bad bews. Jack the car up, put it on REALLY solod stands, and pull on the suspension and steering components. See if you feel anything odd.

You may just want to play it safe and take it into a shop - just to find out what is wrong.

After THEY diagnose it, come back here and we can tell you how to fix it.

And don't take it anywhere over 30MPH. If you have a tie rod going, the result is one front tire going one way, the other another!
