A power steering pump will "squall" when it is getting worn out, or if it had been rebuilt and they did not get the "slippers" back in the same position as they came out (see pic) it will make noise.
The "slippers" will go back in in either direction, so I always mark the tops of mine in order to ensure they go back in correctly. I also try to keep the springs in order with the slippers, but it is not always possible and so far it does not really seem to matter.
The noise can also be caused by air trapped in the system, clogged pump screen and/or contaminated burned fluid.
