    Rubbing noise when slowly turning

    When slowly turning i hear and feel a noise that feels like something is rubbing. When i took the front wheels off it looked like there were little scratch marks where the wheel might have rubbed it (I have the 18inch wheel package and the correct tires on the wheels) There is VERY little play between the struts and the wheel(maybe the width of a penny?). I dont know if this is normal or not. I took it to a shop and they couldnt find anything wrong(i suspected bearings but it wasnt) The only other suggestion they had was to get an alignment.

    Have any of you had this issue?

    Also check the sway bar bushings to see if they are bad

    If it's a limited slip differential you should change the differential oil and limited slip additive. Sounds like the symptom of sticking clutch plates.
