Grinding noise while accelerating

Every now and then my car will make a grinding in the front while accelerating. I do need new rear tires. Also I just had new front barring put on. Could either or both of these be my issue? Or something else? The sound doesn't always happen.

Does it happen while accelerating and turning either direction WHich side bearing was replaced? How many miles on vehicle?? What condition aare the cv axles in, are either of the boots torn??? I have found that when 1 front wheel bearing is replaced the other will need replacing in the near future.

Was the grinding present when wheel bearing was replaced and has it changed for the better since or still present.

Right front barring... And ball joints(?). 95000 miles. That's all I can tell you, I don't know what the other stuff is. Had alignment 3 months ago with 2 new front tires.
