Default Tie Rod Problem, I think?

Ok.. if I am correct, the tie rods are the ones up and a little to the rear of the front disk brakes. I think that because of the joint and such blah blah blah...

Well both the driver side AND the passenger side Tierods are touching my disk brakes... Like they are actually planted on the face of the inboard disks.

I have never heard of such a problem before, let alone seen it.

I found out that this was a problem once I got a mile or so away from my house when I heard screeching. I stopped to check it out and nothing seemed to be caught in the brakes so I continued on.
Still screeching...

So now I pull over on the Highway and take a closer look, and it is my tie rods! AUGH!

Anyone have any idea what could have happened?

I have not hit a single curb, or anythign at all since I have had the car. Last thing I did in the car was the night before, I went on a long drive at 3am down a highway and back. Just enjoying the car around a few twisties... It worked fine last night... but not today?

Is this what you're talking about? If so I'm not sure. They mount to a point on the hub don't they. So they should be stationary, and not possible to rub the disk. Which makes me think the problem is with the rotors themselves. Maybe they're warped, do you feel any shaking while braking? This should be under warranty, so I'd just let Subaru deal with it.

Well it is at Subaru's lot right now so I will hafta take a picture tommorow. Didn't even think of that! lol....

But yes Eby is correct, it is that tire rod. It seems to be in contact with the back of the disk which is really stange. I do not see why it would be doing that, as it would be a rather large problem like a cracked knuckle or something... hrrmmm...

All I know for a fact, it that it had that metal on metal screech coming mainly from the front right. Brake pads do not make that sound unless they are totally worn down, but I just had my 15k inspection a little bit ago and I had 85% left.

Will take pictures tommrorow...

Cool

Maybe it was the spirited driving. Kris had a suspension problem in his old prelude. The torsion or sway bar broke or sumthing. Drove fine except for tight turns or hard drivin and then you can hear something bottom out. I think he was trying to keep up with porsches at the driving class.

Any pics of the car??

Yep I shredded the rear suspension bushings on my Prelude. And yes....it was trying to keep up with Porsches at the driving school. That is what happens when you take too many fast corners on a crappy surface!

Hmm, maybe you just had some ice built up somewhere that was causing it.

Glad to hear that your car is OK!

I would really be interested in knowing what might have been causing it though.

FM man FM. Somethings work like that.

I'm down with Eby's hypothesis. Warm brakes melt snow. Water seeps into cracks, crevices, seals then refreezes. A night in the garage and Voila!!! F***ing Magic.

Funny you had this problem. After I got stuck that day, I had an ABS light on the way home. Everything in the wheel well was covered in snow. Turned up the temp in the garage. Next day, dry car and ABS light gone. I wasn't too worried about it because I figured it had to do with all the colorful comments I was giving the car when I was STUCK!!!! Sorry, baby.
