Default Noise when turning

Hey guys well I am new to this thread I found you guys from NASIOC but anyways back to the problem at hand. I have a 96' Outback... Basically its amazing but one problem. When I turn sharp right I believe it sounds like something drags. I have no clue what it could be. Only when I turn right not left or straight or anything.

Anyone have an idea what it could be?

Could be a CV joint in a front axle. They usually make a clicking noise when turning sharply at slow speeds too.

Welcome to the board!

Sometimes worn or broken front brake pads will make grinding and scraping noises that change with steering angle. Check the thickness and don't assume they're all OK if one looks good, the originals I pulled off my 98 were very unevenly worn, with big differences between inboard and outboard pads.

I replaced all the brake pads about three days ago. And the brake pads where unevenly worn.

Where is the CV Joint? I will look at it.

There are inner and outer CV joints, follow the driveshafts from the hubs to the tranny/diff, they are in accordion boots. Look for rips in the rubber and signs of oil being flung.
