power steering pump whining after lift
installed a 3" front and 2" rear lift last week, didn't really mess up my alignment.. maybe a hair and then I had to make the steering wheel straight again, but everything is fix except the axle being shifted to the passenger side one inch, which I'm waiting for the Adjustable track bar to fix...
The problem is that now my Power steering pump is whining, even while going straight, it's not real loud but you can def hear it especially when you get the RPM's up. And now when I turn the wheel to the left, my ABS light comes on, and then when I straighten it back out or turn to the right, the ABS light will go back off.. I'm guessing I have a bad connection some where. I was doing some research on the Power steering issue and I read that the steering pump and the Brakes are linked together some how due to the Hydro Boost, and if thats the case maybe there is one issue that's causing all this to happen.. but I'm stumped because I didn't touch anything having to do with the power steering... any idea's would be greatly appreciated. thanks
