    2000 GMC Z71 - Power Steering Issue

    Truck is HARD to steer to the right. Mechanic recommended removing the old fluid and running LUCAS power steering additive. That helped for a week or so, but, didn't eliminate the issue completely. Going to the shop Friday. Am I looking at a new pump or.........? Thanks!!

    Steering gear(or rack) which ever you have. Bad pump usually means no assist or limited assist, direction not important, only provides psi. Gear box provides left or right direction.

    It was the gear. Also had to replace the pitman arm as it could not be removed. My mechanic broke 2 pullers trying. Drives fine now. Thanks for the info.
