But steering was good
Chevy Mechanic: TIM MOHR, ASE MASTER TECH replied 4 months ago

ok, then you got a bad pump the 2 times, the only available rebuild for these is an A-1 cordone, and they have a very poor quality control, I went through 5 of them before I got a good one, your only other option is to buy a new one,Tim
