Should I swap power steering pump on 2002 Ford Ranger?


Topic starter

I've got a 2002 Ford Ranger 3.0 Automatic RWD with 216.7k miles and there's a good bit of slop in the power rack and pinion (all one solid unit). Already sourced replacement rack and pinion (Phoenix Rack and Axle), and Moog tie rod ends. Thinking of swapping power steering pump, as I bought it at ~185k miles and there was no prior maintenance record. Should I swap it along with the hoses, and if so, is it okay to buy a remanufactured one claiming a lifetime warranty?

If you want to change the pump, get a new one. 

@yaser Is that still taking into account the lifetime warranty advertised on the remanufactured part costing about 1/3 the price(as compared to new from what I'm finding)?

For the remanufactured pumps, they only change the seals, nothing else. You better off buying a new one.
