Customer Question

last week my wife slide on ice into a curb and bent the lower control arm. we replaced the lower control arm, cv joint, and oil seal. then had it an alignment done. the car drives perfectly except when over 55 mph with the steering while turned slighly to the left it makes a rubbing sound like a tire rubbing in the wheel well and slight vibration. the week before the accident i had the tires rotated and it drove fine. does this sound like a bearing?

it does have you checked the wheel bearing for play? have you confirmed there is no rubbing ? have you verified the wheel is not loose?
