Default GC8s....anyone ever need to change CVs,wheel bearings,etc?

I am just wondering if any GC8 owners have had to change any of these items? I have notice a little rattling and steering wheels feedback over bumps I think right hand turn only I could be wrong. Anyway just trying to save time by looking into common problems first.
Thanks for help

What year are we talking about?
Are you within the 5 yrs/60000 miles powertrain warranty?

CVs go click-click-click and get worse when you turn towards the one that's hurting.

wheel bearings roar and sometimes change in sound when you swerve hard in the direction of the sound, but generally their pitch is solely dependent on speed.

CV joints don't often fail on low-mileage subarus unless the boots tear and are neglected. wheel bearings on the other hand...

well you can search about those if you think you hear one. it's not subaru's strongest point, let's say that.
