    Help!!! Weird sound , New to WRX family

    I have an 05 wrx that was lowered with Tein springs but they kept stock struts , whenever I turn left I hear a sound coming from underneath like a grinding . It's only when I turn left n mind you it's at a slow rate of speed , ie; taking left turn unto street , pulling into parking lot that sort of stuff. Please help, good advice is hard to find these days .

    Have you had it serviced regularly? Are your wheels after market?
    How many miles on car? How many miles on struts? (Or are they original)
    The strut could be blown. Is the car sitting level or leaning to the left?
    We need more info to help you better

    So the wheels are stock as are the struts . I've just owned it for 6 weeks and dealer I bought it from did regular tune up only on it . It has about. 112,00 miles on it.

    No clicking or clacking sound , man hard to explain because when it makes the sound it also feels like the car is pulling itself back as well

    take a long screw drive and look through the rims at the rotor. behind the rotor you will see a dust shield made of tin. use the screw driver to push it away from the rotor. if the noise changes then thats your problem. I have an uncle that owns a shop in mansfield but that would be a bit of a drive from methuen

    I'm on the South Shore,
    Try a Sullivan Tire, they always have great service, much less than dealer.
    There has got to be one close to you. They will also go through the car and see what kind of shape it's in.
    I halved used them and my local Subaru dealer for years.
