Replacing Power Steering??

Hey Guys so I went to my local dealership and they cant replace my power steering pump because of the 37" tires i have on it. Which for some reason i already knew they would say that but anyways I ordered the motor craft oem steering pump and im wondering if there is anybody out there that has done this already or is there a thread with any help. Any info would be great.

its been a while since i've done one but i know for a fact the fan gets in the way. i think you can work around it though if you remove the upper shroud. you'll need to remove the pulley and that'll require a ps pump pulley remover. after that it's straight forward, 3 bolts hold it in, one feed line, one high pressure line

you'll need a white teflon o-ring for the high pressure line also

edit

I can't believe they told you they can't work on your truck because of the tires. regardless of how high the thing sits you still have to lay on the grille/rad support to reach everything. you could have tractor tires on the thing and i'd still get a ladder and work on it

Man I hope ur luck is better than mine....
I had a little pedal kickback and trouble steering at an idle and waved it off. Mth or so later whining starts and ps and pb are barely present. I get to my mechanic and it needs ps pump, master cylinder, and hydroboost unit. Its another problem ford is fully aware of and don't give a $hit it cost 1500 to have it fixed right. Ford knows it was a flaw bc whn my mechanic got the new master cylinder, it wouldn't bolt up to original setup, bthere is an improved working replacement.....kinda like the riginal faulty 6. 4 fuel filters. If only ford would man up when they screw up, it would keep a lot more loyal ford folks loyal.

Sorry for my rant

They SINNER6.0 thanks for the info and i think you understood me wrong... dealership said the 37" tires cause the power steering to fail. Which i call BULLCHIT.

Hey COALROLLA9740 Why wont they cover your 6.4?? I found an TSB Report For the Kickback Pedal its TSB 99-25-8 if that helps any!

I didn't even mess with ford srv bc of all the bullchit they put u thru. Not to mention down time from my trk. Its not peculiar for u to take ur trk to a ford dealer and sit for a week bf it would get looked @.I thought the pump was the only repair i was n need of....oh was I wrong!

Go to the dealer armed with the tsb and give it a try...it does state if filter placed on pump to remove contaminants doesn't resolve kickback issue, then replace hydroboost system. I just get impatient, but I think u could end up getting it repaired on fomoco's dime
