1992 Subaru Loyale 4x4 (push button) 5spd
Here's the issue. I had my wheel bearings replaced a few months back and I figured I was good to go. About a month ago there was noise starting to come from the rear passenger tire area. About a week ago I was going down the local highway at 55mph and the noise was worse and worse...to the point that the wheel came off and the axle kissed the pavement. Sparks flew for several feet. My buddy put the tire back on, told me the hub was shot. He tightened the spindle nut really really tight and said dont go out of town. Stay local for a bit. Drive as less as possible.
There is a grinding noise that fluctuates and if I drive long enough, the rim gets really hot and smells the same. Any ideas here? Obviously something is rubbing really wrong.
