Rebuild or repair your PS pump?
 
Has anyone ever rebuilt their power steering pump in your wj's??? I was thinking about picking up one of the rebuild kits from rockauto.com and rebuilding mine. If so is it easy? Did a search and couldn't find anything. Thanks...

Did you end up do this? Mine is acting up so Im debating a rebuild of getting a new one.

Nobody ever replied and I'm still sitting with a leaking pump since I haven't had time to deal with it. My buddy did end up giving me his from his 02 that didn't leak and I'd like to rebuild it anyway so hoping for some feedback.

I replaced mine with a reman from the autoparts store. If you do that, be sure to buy new lines as well.

They do more than just replace seals and bushings...

Umm, no its not. Did the gear you get from redhead come with the pump too? If it does, thats an awesome price! If not, its still actually a pretty good price.

That's what I thought, pump on top and gear box on the bottom right?
