Default rubbing sound taking corners or swirving

had my car 3 months loving and hating it (more love though :>) since ive had it there has been a rubbing sound coming from the left side of the car

dealership said ah bearings so they replaced them
its still making the noise
dealership said ah rotors and break pads
its still making the noise

1k$ later its still making the noise and no one so far can tell me whats making it but they can sure tell me what else needs to be fixed ;p


basically the sound is coming from the back left side its a metal on metal rubbing sound that always happens when i take a right turn or right swerve harder than i should and occasionally when i take a right turn at a slow speed (10mph or so)

ive taken off the back left wheel (thats where i assume the noise is coming from) its the only wheel on the car where the inside of it is filled with rust and it looks like a new caliper was put on there before i bought it so im assuming there were problems with this before anyways i didnt see anything wrong from what i could see but i didnt take anything else apart

i dont see any break dust build up or any grooves/wear in the rotor although the pads seem to be touching it i dont have a problem at all with breaking and the car doesnt seem to slow down faster than it should when im not giving it gas


so far 2 dealerships 1 mechanic and a few friends havnt figured it out so any suggestions at all are welcome im goin broke ;p

ive got an 02 RS and was experiencing similar noises on hard right corners i also have an aftermarket exhaust which i found to be causing the noise. the exhaust was loose and would knock on corners, i fixed the problem by securing the exhaust tighter with a metal clamp

messed around with the exhaust im not sure how loose it is compared to other subarus but compared to my friends celica there is some major play in it and if i shake it slightly it moves back and forth all the way up to the engine but from what i saw there was nothing for it to rub against

but i ordered 4 kartboy hangers anyways its worth a try ;p


i took some different pics of the back end underneath since thats where the grinding sound is coming from not sure if theyre going to be any help
