Problems after truck was stolen and recovered...

The 05 F250 6.0 was stolen abouth a month ago and recovered within days after. The mechanic said that everything checked out and sent it to the body shop. After 30 days, I was able to pick it up and noticed immediately that the power steering was very bad. When they recovered it they noticed that the fuses (2) 60 amp fuses were pulled from under the hood in conjuction both the ABS pump and ABS module. While driving it home tonight (about 12 miles) I noticed the power steering would kick in at above 2,000 rpm otherwise at idle is was non existent. While in the drive way tonight, in park and running, I can barely turn the wheel without applying alot of effort. I pumped out all the fluid and replaced it with Mercon 5 and still the same results. It does get better the higher the RPM but once it gets back to idle it is still hard to steer left to right. I am tired of waiting for State Farm and their useless timeframe, I am thinking the power steering pump is bad but I am not sure. I did try to push on the brakes while turning and noticed the some pulsating so that furthers my thoughts. What are your thoughts?

Sounds like a pump as long as your belt is not slipping.
