Groaning Sound from left side when I accelerate?

I have a 1990 Ford Taurus, and when I accelerate over 30k's, I hear a
groaning sound. If I turn the wheel to the right slightly, it goes away,
but when I return the wheel straight, it comes back. The car seems to steer
fine, and there are no noises when I turn. The power steering fluid is
okay -- It was low at one point, and I topped it up. Anyway, I tried
draining the fluid, tightening the clamps, checking for leaks, and adding an
additive; yet, the noise still continues. My questions are: Is it the
power steering pump? Is it the rack? Or, is it the high pressure hose? Any
ideas? Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Bad CV shaft, bad bearing, or maybe the brake rotor warped or other?
I would carefully inspect them all. I had one set of aftermarket
front pads on my taurus that were made so the hung over the outside
of the rotor. As they wore, they wore a lip in the edge of the pad
and caused some strange vibration/noise.

I also had a bubble in a tire once that cause some strange noise
at higher speeds.

i have had pres. side hose vibr. and return hose vibr. on many different
car models. being yours is on a taurus i would first wonder if it has been
replaced for leakage (common) and not routed perfect....if it is routed
correctly and not grounding anywhere i would try to isolate the noise by
using a piece of ROPE to put some tension on the hose assy. and seeing if
it changed the sound any at all. if the noise is any different or gone than
it is a hose/line prob. if noise doesnt change than either it is an
internal pump prob. or not p/s related.........all these ideas are
'probably' b/c its very difficult to diag. car noises on a keyboard and
monitor but you can get some ideas..............kjun
