Q: Noise from rear on 1999 Subaru Forester

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When making tight turns, primarily to the left, and especially while accelerating, I get a rubbing sound. Assuming it indicated worn pads, had brake system checked thoroughly and found OK. Noise is not clicking as a bad CV. What could it be? No similar noise going straight - forward or backward. Thanks.

Just saw this question. I have replaced a lot of rear wheel bearing on the back of 1999 to 2002 Foresters.
I would check your inner fenders. And, did the shop pull off both of your calipers and look at the inside portions of the pads and rotors? Sometimes they forget to do that and there is some roughness on the inside part of the rotors. or pads. What were the percentages and millimeters remaining and how far away were the wear tabs. Did they check the run out of the wheel bearings They can make noise on turns.
Thanks.

++ Done - all clear.

++ To be sure, we replaced both pads and turned the rotors. No change.

++ That is next on the list followed by the rear differential.
I had a similar problem. Took me forever, and lots of money to figure out that it was the transmission mount. Firestone put it up on the rack and then showed me the flex of the mount. It seemed worn out and I had them replace it. Going smooth now.
