    1997 Subaru Outback wagon. ~80K.

    When I turn right sharply at any speed over 10 mph, I hear a rubbing or
    scraping kind of noise from the left rear wheel area. When I straighten

    Have not noticed same when turning left.

    Visual inspection reveals nothing out of the ordinary.

    Ideas? Thanks in advance....

    Make sure you don't have a broken spring, there was a recall on this and
    sometimes the broken spring would rub on a tire....bad enough to cause a
    blow out. TG
