2003 Subaru Baja Sport 4 Cyl 2.50L
Steering & Suspension
Rear wheel on driver"s side leaning in at the top and rubbing on the wheel well.
This is a new one on me. About a week ago pulling out of a bay at a self-serve car wash I Heard something of a pop. Turning out into traffic there was the tell-tale squeek of a blown strut . Finished the strut relpacement this mornoing, and quite an ordeal was. The strut was indeed blown...it came apart in three pieces. However, after that was done, backing out of the driveway, that same squeek occured. It was the tire rubbing on the wheel well, and not the strut at all. When I parked again is when notriced the wheel lean. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?
Several possibilities; faulty / worn rear control arm, rear control arm bushing, faulty upper strut mount - to list only a few.
