Question:

Rubbing noise front axle during tight turns both directions?

Sound only happens on very tight almost 90 degree turns, like into a tight parking spot or tight turn into a drivewayAt first I thought it was the front tires rubbing the wheelwell as the noise does sound kinda like rubber rubbing or stretching, definitely not metallic . but there is no ‘feel‘ that the tires are being impeded.Owners manual says the car can take 215s and 235s. It‘s got 235s. So the tires are oem size.Car is high mileage so I suppose suspension components could have something to do with it.Ideas?

Answer:

If you have a front wheel drive it would be your drive axles on both sides which would be the outer ends of the drive axle CV joints.Those have to pivot alot on turns going back and forth as they are rotating around in a circle.

It's probably the power steering belt slipping. You can get it tightened or get a new belt, and make sure there is enough fluid.
