POWER steering leak! please help, im mad.

OK i have a 01 GC 4.7 with hydraulic fan, so just replaced my power steering pump with reservoir and pulley, now i used the mopar fluid and everything. Did the lock to lock procedure and everything. Still whines anddddd its pissing fluid when running. cant figure out from where. i checked all the lines and none of them seem to be leaking. All i can see is that its leaking off the oil filter and dripping down to the ground. ???? IDK where its coming from. Ive laid under the car starring at it and above starring at it.

I had a similar problem... Turned out to be a faulty pump...

Well the first time I got it fixed I got all new hoses, a serpantine belt, H20 Pump, power steering pump, 02 sensor, and oil change. It held up for a few months, had occasional very small leaks here and there that frustrated me completly.... Also during which time my front differential seized up coming back from Colorado, which totally sucked. After sinking that much money into it already I just went ahead decided to put a lift on, during which my mechanic found the newly replaced power steering pump leaking out of the housing. He said it was a bad seal and the pump needed to be replaced. It didnt look wet at all when I saw the part but Im not sure how wet it was though when he took it out. Since he replaced it last month I havent had any problems as of yet.... Hope that helps a bit...
