So I was plowing 3 feet of snow yesterday, and I noticed no more steering assist. So my first thought is that I have low fluid. But when I got out of my truck I could hear a severe rattling noise coming from my pump. So I dump some fluid in there and it's full already and the noise doesn't go away. So does that mean the bearings are shot in the pump?:confused0006:

if there is no assist it is more than a brg. maybe the shaft busted, take the belt off and see it the pulley just comes out:D
