Brakes and steering loss/issues

Brakes have been for lack of a better description "kicking back" when I go to hit the brakes. At first it was annoying and now it is so bad that I can barely pull or back up to something for fear of hitting it. Second problem was the power steering seemed to come and go unfortunately in some pretty sharp corners. If I'm on the brake at the same time I can feel the brake in the wheel and likewise the steering in the brake (pulse). I replaced the power steering pump and it blew a seal a few miles down the road. I thought maybe it was just a bad seal and replaced it again today. No improvement in steering and now it appears to be leaking from either the steering box or resevoir. It is difficult to tell due to the amount of fluid everywhere at this point. My mechanic is eying the hydo-boost @ the master cylinder. I need help though! Anyone have any input?

Typically hydro-boost and the system needs to be flushed. You may have hoses that are starting to deteriorate and contaminating the pump / box / hydroboost.

When I hit the brake, power steering fluid is spraying out of the shaft seal on the power steering pump. Also, after we drained the resevoir and cleaned it we added new fluid and it is instantly turned the color of motor oil and has metel shavings in it.

Then you bought a bad replacement pump, or debris in the system destroyed the rebuilt.

Back again.... Blew a powersteering pump a week and a half ago, had it swapped and today it blew again! I am so fed up with this truck! I have replaced the Hydroboost, the steering gearbox and 6 pumps in a year and a half! I'm going after the hoses this time. Any other suggestions for me?
