    my car is making a weird noise coming from the rear, it almost sounds like a grinding noise. Btw it is a quattro. Now the odd thing is that the noise goes away momenteraly when taking left turns, im thinking its either a bent axle or unbalanced wheel? You guys have any other ideas

    If it goes away when you turn left it's your wheel bearing.

    break pad hanging up? No - I guess that wouldn't matter if you were turning.
    How fast are you going when you hear the noise? A good test for wheel bearing is to find a windy road, if it gets louder when you turn right - AND goes away/ gets quieter when you turn left, then you know it's your left wheel bearing.

    Speed doesn't kill. It's that damn sudden stop.
