Hello I drive an infinity g35 2008. I have recently hit my front left and back tire on a pavement and the rims were slightly damaged! I had new rims installed and balanced the car! But now when ever I take a right turn on a straight road moving from lane to lane or even on a turn I hear a high pitched sound and the steering gets harder! This only happens when I take a right turn! Can this be the bearing? What can I do! There is no abs sign appearing! If I drive slow on a right turn the sound is not there but just a shift from lane to lane, the sound appears! Please help!
Check the steering rack, it could be bent causing the stiff steering. Noise could be from the serpentine belts.

For teting if it is a bent rack, lift up front of vehicle and with engine off, slowly turn the steering wheel from left to right, noting the effort required. If at any point there seem to be any tightness, that is an indication of a possible bent rack. Try it a few times to reconfirm if it occurs at the same place.
Do not turn the steering too fast or for extended period as fluids could be forced out of the reservoir. Start engine to let the fluids settle after a few tries and you can repeat.
