grinding noice on to rear of impreza please help me

Hi just woundering if any 1 can help me, i have a 2001 impreza bugeye 2.0gx awd and there has been a slight grinding noice at the rear but last night when i was driving it sounded like the exhaust had fallen off and was scraping on the floor. i looked and exhaust is fine but the noice is very loud. when i go faster it gets louder and sounds to be the drivers passanger rear more than drivers. there is nothing hanging down or out of place.
any ideas please?
thanks

i was going to suggest it's a wheel bearing, that makes a grinding noise when on its way out. Though i've never heard one sounding loud. Get it to a garage and have the hubs n bearings inspected

Edited to say - just seen other thread n posts!

TBH a diff isnt a big job and isnt that expensive either

Yes they do, when you take the cost of the seal/oil and then labour I spose its not too bad, are you uprating any bushes while it out ?

To do the job on your own drive would cost about 26 quid.

Ive had all the oil changed in diff last week so hopefull they can re use it. Will have to ask about bushes as not thought about them. In theory i could do job but not got the greatest tool collection so might struggle. Probably best if they did it at garage.
