Default When turning left, rear right grings, when turning right, rear left grinds!!

Ok well heres the story.

I replaced BOTH rear hub assemblys on my 2002 wrx sedan about 2 months ago.
I bought the hub assemblys used. (hub,knuckle/housing, wheel bearings bla bla.)

At the time I had kyb agx's with tanabge gf210's. i didnt get an alignment but i drove the car for about a week and all was fine except a rubbing noise that seemed like my tires were rubbing (rota torques with 225/45 reo70's)

about two weeks ago i replaced the springs and struts with used JIC flta1 coilovers which are in good condition, less than 10k. I get em in, play with the camber in the rear a little so theres no rubbing and go for a couple test drives.
there were these "grinding" sounds coming form the rear wheel areas. both left and right while turning.

If I turned left it come from the rear right etc.

I finally got my car aligned yesterday as well as got some new inner tie rods installed.

final alignment settings were 1.5 up front, 1.25 rear, o toe all around.

but the grinding sounds seemed to have gotten worse.

so i pulled the rear rotors off to inspect the ebrake assembly, shoes etc. and didnt really notice any rubbing marks. I was told this was the most likely thing because the sound really indicates the rear drums.

I was told its not a wheel bearing, cv joint or the wheel rubbing as the sound clearly indicates none of these.

anyone have ANY clue what the hell it is? or what I should do to try and fix it?

it doesnt really slow the car down while the sound is happening. it only happens when i make sharp turns when theres a load put on that side of the car.

im truly stumped right now lol. ill try and take a vid and some pics of the rear right and rear left to show ya what im working with.

-Alan

just for the guys whos dont like to rear.

2002 wrx sedan. JIC flta1's. grinding from rear right and left when turning sharp. NOT wheel rubbing or wheel bearings.
