Ticking sound/Vibration/Rotors

Hello everyone,

I own a 2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS Sedan, absolutely love the car it is a joy to drive. I have 3 concerns to put out there.

1. I hear a very fast but faint high sounding ticking noise coming from the front when I press on the gas, around 2500 to 3000 rpm. The sound intensifies when I am going up hill, and then sounds more like a high pitched fast knocking. It happens in the higher gears mostly 3rd to 5th, and on the highway. Asked others and the dealer about it and no one hears it(

2. Just recently I hear a louder mid range vibration sound coming from the front as well. Itís immediately after I take my foot off the gas and press the clutch in. I donít feel any vibrations I just hear it, its getting pretty loud. Seems like it happens when the revs are falling from 4000 rpm to 3000 rpm. I park the car put it in neutral and the engine revs clean no vibrations. It is mostly on take off in the 1st to 3rd gears, just as I let off the gas and revs are falling. Annoying!!!

3. I had my brakes done and they changed the rotors as well. Iím at 90,000km and was expecting to change the pads but not the rotors to. I think I did pretty good lasting till now until my first brake job, front 10% and back 20% left on the pads. But what kind of mileage is everyone else getting with their rotors?
