Rubbing/grinding when backing in a turn

Ive searched the forums trying to find something on this and just have come up empty handed

When backing while cutting the wheel to the left I'm hearing a rubbing or grinding sound

I've stopped and looked under the Jeep to see if the dust shield or something might her catching. No dice

It doesn't sound like metal on metal... I don't think. Maybe I'm just not looking st the while picture and need to look again

Ideas?

Edit: 235 tires and stock ride height

Unless Mrblaine actually is a Wizard, it's impossible to diagnose a problem like this without a sound vid. He will know though, if he reads this.

Ha... I figured that might come up. I'll have to see if I can catch in inside and maybe have one of my boys stand on the outside to see if we can catch it from the exterior as well

Do you have a friend with a GoPro?

Mounting one under the front bumper pointing at the axle may help...

Well, then...

since the noise is while backing...

lay in front of it and have someone (that you trust!) turn hard left and back away from you.

My oldest and I just walked outside. Forward, backward 3-4 times. Couldn't recreate the noise

Hate when that happens!!

Look for a slightly worn spot in the paint on your left lower control arm where your tire is rubbing.
