Yet another...

Yes I know there are alot of threads about suspension on these trucks, and I've read just about all of them but I'm still not sure exactly what I need to do.

Symptom - when I make left turns (only certain angles or speeds) there is a grinding/vibrating noise somewhere in the front end. I've also noticed that when I'm at idle that I can barely turn the wheels at all. I am assuming my power steering pump is out, but I'm not sure if my hubs are going out as well.

any help on troubleshooting would be GREAT!!

So is there a write up somewhere on how to change out the power steering pump? Front hubs?

Also in reading, I'm thinking it could also be the steering gear box?
