Hiya, any mudflaps? They could rub going straight when going over bumps.

I had this issue, made a horrible squealing (graunching) sort of noise, it turned out to be the hub had worn loose in the bearing (too much hard cornering I think) and it caused the outer cv joint to rub on the hub carrier (you could see where it had left a clean steel ring through the rust). Needed a new hub and wheel bearing (as you usually have to break the bearing to get the hub out) - if you're not sure if that is the problem I would get someone at a garage to have a look first.

 

Unless you have tools to press in the new hub and bearing you're better off going to a garage and getting them to do it. I think the parts would be around £50 from GSF / Euro Car Parts, plus a couple of hours labour.

Hope this helps.
