What did the fluid look like when you changed it?

Ive tried different fluids too. Ive tried basic fluid. No difference. Ive tried Lucas Oil PS fluid. No difference. Then i tried synthetic fluid with a new power steering pump. No difference. So now im thinking new rack and pinion and/or new (OEM) PS pump

Mine does the same thing. It makes a whining/ straining sound when ever I turn. I just ignore it and hope it goes away.

Havent heard of this problem before. Rebuilding my '95 now. When i bought it, the power steering kept cutting out. On further inspection i noticed a huge leak. Cleaned it all up etc. My question is what causes this whining and could it of caused my leak. As for manual steering racks. Remove the pump, lines and plug/remove the heat exchanger. Buy a shorter belt etc. Shouldnt be an issue.
