    rubbing sound in reverse....

    When I back out of a parking spot and crank the steering wheel all the way to the left, I get a rubbing sound from the rear end. The car is lowered. It seems to only be when I turn the car all the way to one side. Could it be a camber issue? Please help!

    Do a visual inspection of the underside if something is rubbing so loud you can hear it, there will usually be evidence. I have a hunch that your backing plates are rubbing against the inside lip of your rear brake rotor. Do you hear the rubbing noise if you are going say 15 or 20 mph and make a sharp turn? you could do figure 8's in an open parking lot and see if you hear it, it might help you narrow it down. I have worked on thousands of Subarus and this is the most common rear end grinding noise i hear.
