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

Wheel bearings or bad axle.

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.
