first, check your brake pads, the grinding starts when the pad is worn to the rivets that hold it, then the pad starts to crack and break away. once the pad is gone there will be play that allows whats left of the pad to move around.. causing the thump, there should also be some change under braking, like going from a thump to a grind

this could also be wheel bearings.. but my guess would be the pads, and if it got to that point.. i would bet that the rotor is shot as well

youtube is your friend here for how to videos.
easier to see it than read it.
fairly easy and straight forward, and most often, you can "loan a tool" from autozone or oreilly autoparts.

Located in the Engine Block fuse box on the driver's side near the battery. For the Right headlamp it would be # 50 for the Left headlamp it would be # 51. If its the Automatic Headlamp that you are looking for then that would be numbers 20 and 21

Use a bigger fork lift.

It could be many things.

How does it sound when you try to start it?
