    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.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

    ^ This.

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