I have a 02 4x4 duramax with 67,000 mi. that just started making a "wet rubber to hard surface" noise only when my truck turns right and is in motion. And it only makes the noise turning right.The noise does not occur when my truck is stopped and turn the wheels.

I have checked the steering fluid level (O.K.), the right tire for rub marks - including the side wall (No marks or rub points), ball joints all visually checkout, and the diff fluid was change about 10k miles ago ( I plan on checking that again today).

Has anyone had problems with their power steering units or a similar problem? Any helpful suggestions of what this might be or ideas of what to check would be appreciated!

I ended up taking off the wheels and inspecting all of my bushings. While taking of the wheels I noticed metal shavings and movement at my hub. It ended up that my hub assembly had gone out. About two hours and $350 later I was on the road again without the noise. Thanks.
