Don't underestimate the power of your belt tensioner to cause PS problems though. That one nearly bit me in the arse.
Good idea, but the pump is making noise and you can see the spray pattern of PS fluid coming from the (I presume) front seal of the pump. Other than the noise and leakage, she'* having no steering issues. That being said, should I still suspect the rack? Not trying make more work for myself, I just don't want to have to do this again.
