    Rolling Rubbing Sound when turning

    Hey guys,

    Any ideas as what would cause a "Rolling Rubbing Sound when turning"? I had a mechanic look at it...he couldn't find anything, yet he heard it too.

    Well, let's check off the obvious: stock wheels and tires? Do you have aftermarket mud flaps (they can loosen and rub)? How are the CV boots looking, any signs of cracking? How about wheel bearings?

    Also check the intake if it's aftermarket. The AEM CAI on my car would squeak when taking left turns.

    nailed it. Could be the tire actually rubbing on your wheel well somewhere if they are over-sized or if your car is lowered. If it is not your tire rubbing anywhere then I would move to a bad wheel bearing or the possibility of a CV joint/CV shaft getting ready to fail. I still find it odd that your mechanic couldn't pinpoint where it was coming from.
