Default What is this wobbleing sound on my car?

Hi, I've been hearing this sound for about one week now and am not totally sure as to what it is. It is a wobble that speeds up and slows down with the car. I think it may be a wheel bearing. It is coming from my driverside rear wheel. I've heard that this is a problem on some of the 93 and 96 Outback models but I have a 94 sedan. Never the less does anyone have a good guess for me?
Thanks, Micah

if its more like a rotational 'throbbing' grinding sound, its more than likely a bum wheel bearing..

it doesn't sound grindy (yet anyhow). It is more of a rotational "wum wum wum" sound. Sort of the sound it makes Let me know what you think.
Thanks, Micah

Does it get faster as you go faster? If it does, check your tires. I had the same problem and got new tires and it fixed it right up. hope this helps

Try checking the torque on your lugnuts. Some of mine worked a bit loose and made that kind of sound.
