It just keeps getting noisier... i'm not even sure its the bearing, its not the heat shield for sure, but also the wheel doesn't have any 'slop' either..?...

I noticed it after i put on some 1" spacers, don't see how that would make a metal-metal sliding squeaking kind of noise tho?

hmmm i could use a fender roller... but no one in here knows where to find one....

I used to have a subaru & the front axles and wheel berrings go out all the time. I had a 2000 rs w/ the AVO turbo kit on it and with the odometer showing 130K i think i replaced 2-3 axles and 2-3 wheel berrings, look at the "boot" on the axle and see if its ripped,when all the grease gets flung out of it it'll make a noise like that when you turn, or if it does it constantly its probally the wheel berring.

I'm down. Where would be a good mutual spot for all of us? Sonics in hillsboro has always been a place where car meets happen, so I'll throw that idea out there.

Did you have to sign anything prior to moving in? If not, then they don't have anything against you.

14th because there is a RPNW meeting tomorrow and I don't want to have two conflicting dates. So Wednesday the 14th @ 8:00pm @ Sonics in Hillsboro? Is anyone down for this date and time?
