I've read where people have replaced them with remans and had great success - others, not so much.
I don't believe I have ever heard a Ford power steering pump that didn't squeel after any length of time. Something about the bastards just does it, on every single used truck. Hell, I replaced one in an '86 we had with the 300 inline 6. Fresh reman, squeeled out of the damn box.
That being said, have you tried flushing the fluid in it yet? It seemed to help some with turning the wheel in my '01. Both my trucks if you throttle up a little bit, they dont have a problem turning - not as easy to do in an Auto all the time, but my '01 being a 6spd its not problem.
I think replacement pumps run about $60 or so, but I could be wrong.
