6.0 steering problem

I have a 2005 Excursion w/ a 6.0 PS. 6'' lift with 37s and now the power steering pretty is non existent at an idle. It is fine at anything above an idle, there is no leaks and no loss of fluid. the brakes are not effected either. I think it needs a new hydroboost pump, but wanna see if anyone can confirm or deny before spending the money.. please help with any info, it will be greatly appreciated...

i have the same problem and i have read that steering gear can be a cause of this to. said that it can have an internal leak causing low pressure. not sure how you prove it but it sounds possible

I have heard that ford has had like 5 revisions of the pump and that maybe they have higher pressure now

It was a hydroboost pump? Can you tell me what the difference is between a power steering pump and a hydroboost pump.
