Variable speed light grind

Hi all!
First post here, but I've been an avid Ford fan for years. I'd owned mustangs mostly, but I switched over to the Focus for better gas mileage, lower payments, etc.
Anyhow, I have a 2007 SES 5-door. The front right is making a periodic grinding noise when coasting. Under braking or accelerating, this sound isn't audible. It speeds/slows with the speed of the car, not with RPMs. Sounds worse at slower speeds. If coasting at 60mph it's nearly inaudible.

I've heard similar sounds come from brakes, CV shafts and wheel bearings. I just redid the brakes on this thing...roughly 6 months ago I'd say, so I'd hope it's not that. I'm just wondering if the focus is more prone to blow bearings, CV shafts, etc.

Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
