Default '91 Legacy AWD Sedan front end noise Q?

Greetings. I just bought a '91 Legacy AWD sedan with auto trans.
When driven cold, there is a rhythmic rubbing or squishy noise coming from the left front wheel area. It sounds like something is rubbing, but I can't see anything that looks like it is being rubbed. It is definitely related to wheel speed, but not engine speed. It is unaffected by braking or turning or by coasting in neutral. I just had the front left drive axle and boot replaced. The sound existed before and after this replacement.
The sound goes away after five to seven miles, so it's never doing it by the time I get to the shop.
Thanks much in advance for any help.

and some girls don't


*could* be a wheel bearing, sometimes they have this type of sound. usually more when turning one way or another. i'd just wait it out and see if it gets more often or worse i guess.
