    Unhappy AWD Problem.. Need help

    I drive a manual 03 Impreza WRX and I crashed it many months ago...
    drifted out, hopped a curb, popped my tire and got stuck on a fence post.
    My friend tugged me out and ripped out my core support.. Fixed that
    but now while i'm driving (2nd-3rd gear, 25-40 MPH) the car will make a loud screatching noise and feels like the front left wheel (the wheel that hit the curb) is failing for a brief second..
    other than that 1 second inconvenience that happens every so often, the car runs fine.
    what could be the problem?
    could this lead to more problems in the future?
    and how can i fix this????

    Advice or help would be much appreciated

    Look for debris and/or physical damage on the wheel, hub, brake, axle, subframe, and steering, and suspension on that side.

    Possible something could have destroyed the bearing as well...perhaps that needs replacing.
