Noise from rear wheel

Hi, I have a bug eye wrx, this noise started after I was driving off road and now when I drive at 90-95km/h there is a whining noise coming from the driverside rear wheel. Any idea what it could be?
When I drive above or below that speed it is fine?

Cheers
Stean

Re: Noise from rear wheel

you could well have damaged the bearing or got some grit/dust or something binding up in the rear disc...


either that,or you've damaged the rear dif or drive shaft,also check dif oil level and see if there is any swarf in it...

Re: Noise from rear wheel

whilst looking at the dif from the rear,you will see two square or hex nuts on the centre of the dif,top one to fill and obviously bottom one to drain,hope this aids your quest..
