Question about 1993 Subaru Impreza
I own a 93 Subaru Impreza. Recently I was driven off the road by an inconsiderate, to put it nicely, driver. When this happened, it blew out the front passenger tire. I recently replaced it but now I am having difficulty with the tires locking up, or the braking system locking the tires up. When this happens, there is a loud thudding noise, NOT grinding, but thudding but as soon as I pull off and stop, whatever is making the tire seize up releases and the car goes good for a few miles then does it all over again. Any ideas as to what this is and how to fix it? I'm hoping that it's not a costly project because, quite frankly, the dinosaur isn't worth it. I was told that it was most likely the ABS sensor and that, if I pulled the ABS fuse, I could operate the vehicle safely and it would cease to be a problem. Any truth to this? I was also told that it could be a bad wheel bearing. I'm lost. Help, please?
Wheel bearing will rumble
treads on all 4 tyres matching?
fauty wheel sensor that side
seized/leaking caliper piston or pads worn
a flat spot on damaged side tyre
lost a weight dammaded rim /mag
strut or bush damage

I had similar problem with my '99 outback. Replaced the front half shafts and seemed much better. A few months later seemed to be comming back so replaced the driver side shaft again and the problem disappeared. I had put in rebuilt shafts and the driver side shaft was not rebuilt correctly.

loose bolts somewhere in the front end? you have had lots of work done there. wheel weights can fall off or a rim can be difficult to balance?
