Wierd Singing sound

I've begun to hear a singing sound that, at first I attributed to the new tires, but now think is something else.

Wierd part....it only does this when my wheel is aimed to the left.....when I turn it just a hair to the right, silence.

I suppose it's possible that I need to check out some wheel bearings, but this sounds almost like wind going through part of the body.

Anyone heard of anything like this?

It doesn't seem to matter the speed, once it starts doing it, it does it at highway or traffic speeds.

Twilight Zone,,,,,,,,,

Or, maybe you've slipped a belt in one of your tires? Try rotating?

I had a simlar noise on my wifes 300D. It was cured when I..

replaced the CV axles
replaced the rotors
replaced the rear calipers
replaced rear brake pads
replaced the rear brake hoses

Now.. I don't know which of these things was the actual thing that fixed it.
I doubt that the hose had anything to do with it.
The rotors were worn well beyond spec.
The right rear calipers inside piston was jammed about 1/2 out.
Right rear CV axle had a busted boot.

I know this isn't a solution, just things to look at.

I think.. it was the rotor/caliper that was actually causing the whining.

Do you think you could hum a few bars? Maybe we could get a chorus going here.

Funny you should say that, because I've been trying to figure out a way to compare it to something else.

I don't think it's the tires as they are all brand new in the last month.

Doesn't seem to change tone with speed nor load....I'm beginning to wonder if it's my power steering pump....as it quits when I turn the wheel slightly to the right.
