Load roaring sound 1995 subaru sound coming from back

Roaring noise from rear is a classic symptom of a rear wheel bearing beginning to fail. The noise is amplified thru the body and make an awful racket. The trick is figuring out which one is failing. Your mechanic may recommend replacing both sides if the vehicles mileage warrants it.

Our 2007 impala...the traction light and the ABS light stays on all the time..also we are having a roar sound with our tires as if they were snow tires, but they are not.The noise is loud.. any sugges

I would suspect you have a bad wheel hub (bearing) assembly. The bearings will roar/growl when they start to go bad. I've seen the bearings actually disappear from the hubs because it got so bad. Also, the ABS light will come on when the bearings go bad. I would take it to a mechanic before it gets any worse. BTW, GMs are known to have wheel hubs go bad.

I hope I was able to help you out.

Roar on the right side

Its probably the left side, not only because you replaced the right side, but because it changes on right turns.
When you go into a right turn, the bearings on the left side are under more pressure and torque.
The front hub bearing goes bad more often than the axle bearing, so I would expect it to be the left front.

Roaring sound coming from rear. when driving down the the highway the noise gets a little louder. i can hear it really well when i am on my way to work in the morning.

Roaring sounds that get louder with speed is usually the bearings. A mechanic can check this on a lift. Some vehicles need them to be pressed in, others come as one unit with the hub assembly. Good luck!

Makes a roaring sound while driving

Is the sound from the front or rear of the vehicle, can you tell? If front, check the fan clutch, etc. Can you "Feel" the noise in the steering wheel, or seat maybe, when you're driving?
Need more details- Thanks!
