troubleshooting steering problems for 99 f150

I just bought a 99 f150 4x4, very hard to steer, wondering where I should start. power steering leaks, but when reservoir is full, still no power to steering. when truck is jacked up, steering is easy. should I be looking at the pump, or the steering box?

Problem should be the pump.

sounds like the pump,does it whine and the fluid foamy?it may have air trapped in system,you can try turning st wheel lock to lock than top up fluid.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
