    Power Steering Pump Leak

    Will be replacing it this weekend. Pretty sure its the pump and not a hose (my luck). Is it better to use my reservior or buy the pump with it already? Just wasnt sure about the seals or gaskets needed to switch it over.

    i broke my PS reservoir when i was tightening header bolts and the wrench slipped while finishing up my LT install. i borrowed/rented a pulley remover from autozone and it was crucial to have (just have them walk you through what pieces to use before you leave with it).

    i cant remember for sure if i took off my pump or not, but the res should disconnect from just a couple hoses pretty easily.
    CAUTION: the hose on the bottom of the reservoir is on a fairly small connection that you may want to be careful with, its the part that broke on my res.
