    Strange sound while turning...

    I noticed something weird today...when I turn right, whether it be from a stop or going in a slight curve to the right, I keep hearing a weird straining type of sound coming from the rear...kinda sounds like pulling hard enough on rope to hear it stretch. Anyone have any idea what it might be? I tried it going left too but I didn't hear it at all...it's only when I go right. Thoughts, anyone? It's got me a little worried...

    If it is a tie rod, what does that mean? Do I need to get that looked at?

    I would go on and get it looked at. From your signature, I noticed that you haven't installed any aftermarket swaybars (which would've been my first guess). You may have something binding that would require a simply adjustment. Either way, I would think the warranty would apply. My $0.02...

    I have the same thing and have done since I got the car 3 months ago. Car is stock, performance wise. I think I know what it is. Pop the trunk and you'll see the mat that covers the spare tire. If you lift the mat up, you'll see the wodden-ish cover plank that the tire is directly beneath. It's not held in particulalrly tightly in the holes. You can move this 'plank' left and right quite easily. I believe it's this causing the noise. I've never got round to just quietening it, but I believe this is the problem. It has bugged me for a while. One of these days I'll get round to fixing it, if this is the case. One day I did actually remove that plank bit and sit it on top of the mat/carpet in the trunk, and I didn't notice anymore noise that day, but that might have just been 'that day.' It did it today a few times though for sure with all parts where they should be, in the trunk.

    Let me know if my suggestion fixes it for you.

    Can you describe exactly where you put the lube? Then I can take mine to Subaru should that turn out to be my problem as well.

    Thanks.
