Thumbs down CV Axle problem?

Here's the deal. I'm new to Saab's and this forum, and a I know a decent bit about cars. However, I could use a little help.

I own a 2000 9-5 aero with about 100k miles. The right CV axle was clicking hard, so I replaced it. The clicking went away, but unfortunately a new noise has set up camp. I don't know if this was due to a faulty setup, or just a new problem. The sound is a relatively harsh metal-on-metal noise that varies with speed.

I know this is vague and hard to describes via forum, but I figured maybe I'd get lucky and someone who experienced this would hear.

Happy Saabing.

Perhaps you need to replace the struts as they may have become too relaxed or have given out with time, causing the CV housing, or some other part of the axle, to rub the underbody or subframe in some fashion????

Is it one the same side of the car as the axle? Maybe take a look for metal shavings in the general location of the sound.

I think that if the strust relaxed the car would be visibly lower. The noise is consistent with speed so it is some sort of rubbing. To be honest, it sounds like theres a piece of metal in the CV housing.

Well, it could be that some of your needle bearings have come out of your axle's CV joint end, causing that "rubbing" sound. You'll have to pop the CV boot(s) off (split the clamp on the large end and roll the boot to the small end) to get a look in it and perhaps feel around in the goo with your fingers if the bearings are'nt immediately obvious.
I just find it peculiar that you're experiencing "rubbing" after just changing the CV.

Maybe just check if its the backing plate rubbing against the rotor. Push it back and check. The wheel bearing tend to go bad but it wouldnt be that harsh. Thats all i can think off. Let me know what happens.
