strut bearing

96 seville. i took off front wheel to check wheel bearing and what size torx driver i needed to replace. did not change bearing yet. put wheel back on. jacked car using frame. now i get a crunch/grind sound from strut area when i turn wheel. it makes this sound with engine off. so it is not the power steering pump. car has ball joint. and a-arm strut rod but that has rubber bushings on both ends. could it be possible the strut mount/bearing decided to get noisy exactly after i jacked up car? any ideas?

RE: strut bearing

got rid of summer tires and put on my regular all season tires. sound seems gone now. but roads are icy and pretty bumpy due to snow lumps and such. smooth dry roads are hard to find.
