If you can demonstrate the noise for a mechanic, that would be ideal. If you intend to repair this yourself, you will need to diagnose the problems as several issues could cause what you describe. First, all tires must be the same brand/model/wear because torque bind could cause what you describe. Even with all tires the same, TB can still be caused by a bad transmission part. Usually, TB creates a 'feeling' of jerkiness when doing tight turns on dry pavement. You could also have a bad wheel bearing or rear CV joint or perhaps a brake of rim/lug nut problem.

You can have worn bearings on the pinion gear and/or worn universal joints.

2002 Subaru Forester. I have a humming/grinding


I would suspect wheel bearing first
Test just like the front
Wheel off the ground
grab the top and bottom of the tire and rock

However...If I remeber correctly the rear uses axle bearings which are pressed on and difficult to diangose

Therefore... I'd advise you seek a Subau dealer since so few tech see a Forester even once a month
