Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

During the repair see if you may have moved anything that is now touching the steering gear or shaft or firewall and is picking up the engine vibrations and transferring that to the steering column as a hum, whine noise. See the steering gear is loose or its mounting bolts have it in a bond causing pump noise to transfer up the steering shaft.
