Just replaced steering box, now breaks buzz / squeal like crazy

Title says it all.

I have a 2000 powerstroke and had to replace the box. Truck steers great again but everytime i press the break petal the breaks squeal really bad.

Is this normal? If not any ideas on what it could be?

The only part the 2 systems share is the power steering pump. It'll be an unrelated issue if the noise is from the rotors/pads.

Can u feel it in the pedal or just hear it in the pads?

Here is what I learned in doing mine, my 2006 has a brake booster that runs in conjunction with the power steering pump. You may have air in the lines. Also note that this system uses ATF not power steering fluid. You may also
try doing a flush if you have this system.
