    When I put the first pump on it started whining and went out the second one didn't work at all and the 3rd one whined as soon as I started the truck but it worked for about 10 miles and went out

    So the whining is why you replaced the first one? Or was it hard to steer or?

    Have u flushed your lines? I've seen racks cause pumps to fail... ur also using aftermarket parts. They are crap. Toyota is the way to go. I went thru 2 Oreillys pumps before I learned my lesson and bought a Toyota one. Also use good fluid.

    What the last post said. If you are getting the pumps from the same place, try another vender, or better yet, go Toyota. Several OEM parts online for a discount price.
