Rubbing noise during slowing.

Okay bad news.... I think my Cougar woahs are starting... Anyways, I hit some nasty pot hole the other day by wooster, and after that, everytime my car is between 55 down to 10 there is a constant grabbing/rubbing coming from my front driverside wheel, or atleast I think so... Basically its like a grinding noise, but its only during slowing. I can feel it in the steering wheel so Im thinking its in the steering, or in the suspension that goes along with the steering. I dont think its a tranny issue because the tranny is shifting etc. just fine, but the constant rubbing sound worries me.
If anyone can help explain this I would love you in a non ghey way forever. Cuz Im gonna get it in a shop in about a month since I leave Sat. for school and figure I wont be driving it, but I would like to fix it myself and just have the shop or someone on here tell me whats wrong.

How many miles are on your car? If you only experience the problem during braking then i would think it would likely have something to do with the brakes. Have you taken the tire off and inspected everything yet? I would look over everything and make sure nothing is bent or broken. Check all your bolts and make sure none of them are coming loose.
Visual inspection should tell you a lot. I would suspect a brake issue.
