My 2008 Rav4 base 4wd has been screeching for the past few days as title describes. It screeches a bit at the rear when I am turned slightly left and gets more prominent when I turn all the way to the left and turns into more of a grinding/screech combo, something rubbing. My dad helped me verify that it comes from the rear and from both sides, and not from the front.
There is a much less prominent screech when I turn completely right.
The screeching comes with a grinding that I can slightly feel as I drive.
There is no sound when I reverse, only in drive. There's no extra sounds when I hit bumps, besides maybe some small chirps, but no grinding or screeching like I experience when the steering wheel is tilted to the left.
With steering wheel turned all the way left and driving in circles, there is more sound when I drive slow. Also, when I tap the brakes, the screeching/grinding turns into a high pitched screech, and returns to the former when I let off the brake.
Also there aren't any leaks from the grease boots, they're intact.
Thank you in advance anyone!
