My '55 210 has manual steering and I jacked the car up last weekend to install a new speedo cable. At the same time I installed new belts and all week noticed squealing when I turned right(other squealing idling from the belts) so I tightened up the belts last night thinking it was the belts(fixed the squealing while idling) but still squealze when I turn right, any idea what might be going on? I jacked the car up under the front frame so I know I didn't damage anything but now it squeals like a power steering belt is slipping when I turn right, yet I don't have power steering.

Thanks,

Hank

OK well I found out where the squealing is coming from. When I make hard right turns it is actually coming from the right rear quarter of the vehicle so after further inspection there appears to be a slight rubbing of the tire against the body back there. Why would it only be when making hard right turns and not when on the straight away?

Tire roll and likely some slight movement in the rear suspension components. Common when bigger tires are installed. Mine does it a little with 275/60 X 15's on the rear. But I have to be making a pretty hard right turn. Usually 10MPH over the suggested speed in a curve etc.

Mike,

Thanks for the response and that definitely appears to be what is going on with mine my rear tires are 255/50 x 17. Today when driving to work I took it slow around the turns and no squealing.
