Car repair

my 2001 subaru outback LL BEAN has a rubbing noise when i make a hard right or left turn and the car leans. I just bought this car and need help.

A few items come to mind.

One is you MAY have a weak shock absorber (strut). Two: the tires are oversized for the vehicle and three: there may be a loose wheel well liner loose, rubbing on a tire.

Add: sway bar bushing(s) may be worn.
