Have had tires balance and roatated twice for the easy fix greased all of my fittings as well. Just wondering if anyone has any advice before i start poking around this weekend

If it sounds like a belt, then it probably is a belt, since you are putting more force on the belt when you are turning, that's when it will squeak. As far as the shaking... that's a real head scratcher. Is it a lateral shake or a vertical shake? I'd start with the tires and go from there. If you have a dial micrometer you can check for runout on your drive shaft. I'm thinking you're either gonna have to drive at 70 mph all the time, or start chasing the shimmy shimmy shake.
