the noise only occurs only during sharp turns, its a slight humming noise, i believe it may be from the tye rod end or a possible tear in the boot.
I'm not trying to threadjack, but does someone have a tactrix that could PM me the pinout, I'm curious about some things...
Are the wheels on your car stock? ie, do you have wider or larger rims than stock? It actually could be the tire if that is the case.
What do you mean hard turn? Almost all power steering pumps will whine when they get to full rotation - the pump is working really hard.

I have experienced the exact sound.
Only on extreme left turns, slight scrape/rubbing sound. Sounds more like from the front left on my '03 WRX.
I also have a Nissan Sentra SE-R and I put 1 size bigger tire on it, 195/55 to 205/60(actually dia. is real close, just a smidge wider), and it almost does the identical sound. I have to believe it's tire rub you are hearing.
I guess be sure it's from the back like you say. JMO

My Car is fully stock, it currently has Michelin tires that i got from the dealer. Its a very minor humming sound when im turning left. I am only concerned about this issue because this is my baby and my first time own a Subaru. I wanted to come here to hear what experts and other subaru owners had to say about my problem. Do you believe i have to immediately take it to the deal right away?
Upon closer inspection, my passenger side rear tire (which is where I'm hearing noise from) show signs of rubbing. The sidewall has a narrow scrape that runs parallel to the outer circumference of the rim all the way around. The marking is about halfway between the rim and the tread. I will try to post pics when I can.
I think that what's happening is that the body is rolling enough to touch the sidewall to the wheel well.
