Power steering pump??
My steering has been getting pretty loose lately. It isn't a crazy wander, it just takes a bit for the truck to respond after I make an input at the wheel. I thought it could be the ball joints even though they are only two years old. Checked them and the tie rod ends and they are all tight. While I was down there I noticed a lot of leaking from the power steering pump. It is not hard to turn the wheel at a stand still but my braking is not as good as it can be and the pads and rotors are in good condition.
Could the leaking pump give me the loose steering and making the hydro assist brakes a little soft? If I pump them while in park 5 or 6 times they stiffen back up for the rest of the trip.
