What about belt tension on the power steering pump. Any squealing?

Well belt squeal sounds like nails on a chalkboard or metal on metal. Sounds like maybe the belt might have enough slack or is worn enough to squeal when the pump is running.

so, it's really hard to turn the wheel with the car running, but when you shut the car off it's EASY to turn the wheel? [:-]
