Default Grinding noise from passenger rear when turning slowly

There is a rather loud grinding noise at low speed when turning to the left from the right rear wheel.

I've replaced the following:
1. Hub
2. Wheel bearing
3. Rotors
4. Brake Pads

This wheel smacked a curb. I've checked the torque on the wheels and axle nuts as well.

Any ideas?

Chris

CV's normally click though no? At least on all my other cars they did. The boot is still in good shape.

This is a metal on metal grinding sound...

I can go ahead and repalce it though...

I got to thinking about it and you're right. C.V. is usually clicking (but not always). Have you checked the backing plate to make sure it's not bent? Also, what about the E-brake? With the rear wheels off the ground, and turning the right rear by hand, does the wheel turn freely and smoothly? The only other thing I can think of that it might be is the bearing in the center diff.

Hmm backing plate is a good idea... I can hit that with a hammer some. And the e-brake is the other thing I was thinking about this morning. not had a chance to test it yet.

I'll let you guys know when I look at it again at lunch.

Thanks.

Any resolution to this?

My 02 WRX started making this noise and it's driving me nuts.
