If brakes are good,could be cv axel or wheel bearing.

If it only happens when you apply the brakes it is most likely a bad ABS system Sensor or a cracked sensor ring on one of the wheel-hub/axle ends, which is telling the system that your wheels are locking up. The grating sound you hear is the ABS brakes working as they should, but only because the sensor or ring is telling it that you applied the brakes hard and it thinks the wheels are sliding instead of stopping.
