yeah, even though the core'* more expensive, not only could I get my money back the same day, but I can save a TON on shipping. I'm guessing that they don't pay your return shipping for the core, so I'm gonna guesstimate I'd save a cool 30-40 bucks...

I won't put anything that says Duralast on my car. Buy name-brand from AZ only.

And I'd bet a whiny power steering pump that it is a duralast... (they're really that bad?)

Everything duralast is duracrap. Especially their alternators and starters.

Those parts are manufactured offshore by the lowest bidder.

Do you have an Advance Auto Parts? I think they sell the Cardone Reman Pumps.. Check on that.... Also check and see if AZ has the Cardone Pump..

They do. The Saginaw P-Series pump I put on the '87 Camaro was a Cardone from Advance/Discount auto parts....works and seemed "right" in all respects. (Reman pump body, new tin and seals) That'* never a guarantee, but you pay money and you take your chances an anything these days.

Normally, I'd be all for a re-manufactured part. However, a recent experience with re-manufactured PS pumps (Cardone) would make me think twice. The pump failed on my friend'* 00 SSEi, so I put in a remaned, one. It wasn't long before it started to whine. Replaced it under warranty, and the second one was louder than the first. Finally, bought a used one from Ed Morad, which has been doing fine. I'll be the first to admit that it could be just bad luck, however.
