Default Rubbing sound on right turns

When I make right turns, I get a rubbing sound almost like when you have no brake pads left and you tap the brakes lightly and get the rubbing but not the grinding. The rubbing isn't from the brakes though. It just happens on right turns though. I am thinking a bad wheel bearing?

oooo!!!

I just started to get the same sound lol.

im lowered. dont think its rubbing though. but if it is... thats just an excuse to roll my fenders.

when ever i make hard right turns I get a high pitched rubbing/squeeling sound from the front driver side wheel area.

i thought it was the brake dust shield or something but cant figure it out.

It could be the backing plates on the rear brakes, they tend do to it with age. rust builds up behind them and pushes them out into the rotor.

Yeah, an independent Subaru mechanic, passed that along to me after I did my brakes myself. They always grind off a little of the corrosion back there, since the tolerances are pretty tight. After a bit of aggressive cornering I made the noise go away.

I had the exact same problem 2 days ago, a metal on metal sound when I make right turns. The sound was coming from my front left side and i lifted my car on jack stands and rotated each wheel. The front left side was metal on metal when i turned the tire and i saw the backing plate of the front left was rubbing against the back side of the rotor, I just bent it out of the way and the problem was fixed.

I JUST HAD THIS PROBLEM 3 TIMES IN A ROW!! Both the mechanic and I thought it was the wheel bearing, but that was fine, then he rotated the cv axle and that was what it was! I got it replaced and the noise went away until something hit it and bent the seal ring. Now the noise is back!
Good luck!

well....it just started to happen to me and seems to be getting louder. my suspension mods are...

KYB AGX
tanabe gf210
helix front sway bar
steering rack bushings

thats all for the front of the car.

it seems like whenver most/some of the weight of the car is put on the front left wheel, it makes the sound.

like when going around a turn somewhat fast.

I had and '02 WRX that endured some brutal winters and lapses in sanity.... made like a "womp womp womp" almost rubbing after I ignored it for a month, started out innocently enough. evil, my '02s bearings were done by 70k, don't know what's on yours but i'd bet the bearings for sure. get them all replaced at once, it'll be a little pricey but worth saving the headache 3 more times.

Sorry for the late response. My car is not lowered. I have 17" prodrive rims on stock suspension. My car has 62,1xx miles. It will only make the sound on hard right turns but not on gradual ones. It sounds exactly like a bad brake pad when you apply a little pressure. Its like a metallic rubbing. I was under the car. All of the axles look good. No grease leaking from them. The car also wobbles a little and pulls very slightly to the right when you apply the brakes. I think I also have a warped rotor on the passenger side. This sound only started about 3 weeks ago and I've only put about 45 miles on it since then.

Did you put larger tires on you wheels? The rubbing noise could be comming from your tire rubbing on the wheel well. Naturally when you turn right the body roll will be pushing the left side of the car down. There is also more weight on the left side (your in the drives seat). Check your wheel well for rubbing. This happened to me when I put tires that were a hair to big.

Sorry for dredging up this post, but I drove my car around the block the other day and its not as loud. Need some more suggestions before I try to tackle this myself. I have the same tires on the car for a while so rubbing would have happened well before this. I've had tires rub on other cars and it sounds nothing like the sound I described in my earlier posts. It sounds almost like its coming from the rear passenger wheel, but I'm not certain.

I have the same thing too and trying to figure out if it's a bad bearing. It sounds the a metal rubbing noise. Checked under the car twice and made sure nothing's rubbing. The sound just gets worse and worse. First is only on the full lock turns, and now it makes the noise when i am not even close to a full lock turn.

Anyone else knows if this could be caused by a bad bearing?

Thats what mine started out as. The noise would only happen on full lock turns and now it is doing it on normal turns. It is extremely annoying. It totally sounds like bad brakes, but it happens when the brakes aren't even applied. The rear rims aren't extra hot after driving like if you had a frozen caliper and my rear pads have plenty of meat left on them. Oh yeah, splashguards are not rubbing.

I had the EXACT same problem. Read my post here:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1046185

I finally took it to the dealership to have it checked out. What happened was that my downpipe had become loose and was rubbing against my transmission. I can almost guarantee that's what has happened with you as the symptoms are exactly the same. Only on a right turn.
