    Squealing from rear.

    I have a 2002 WRX and it seems to squeal in the rear(maybe right side only). I haven't abused it and it has 127k miles, any ideas? It doesn't.

    1. Could it be more like a roar?
    2. Does it get louder with speed?
    3. If you go around a corner a will the sound stop or get quieter?

    If these are true, then it's time for a wheel bearing.
    In #3 above, if going around a left hand corner stops/quiets the noise, then you need the right side rear wheel bearing replaced.

    sounds like a wheel bearing. but its probably important to know where the sqealing is constant or only when you hit the brakes. obviously if it is only when you hit the brakes, its probably your brakes. if it is constant, most likely a wheel bearing...i think your wallet would prefer needing new brake pads rather than a new wheel bearing...sorry man
