AGR or OEM (OEM also remanufactured) would be my choice for a power steering pump.
The biggest problem with the aftermarket (auto parts stores) power steering pumps I hear about is getting the correct outlet fitting. Seems when the PS units gets rebuilt and reassembled it's a 50/50 chance or less of the correct fitting going on the correct pump.

78-89 ..... SAE fitting
90-97 ..... Metric fitting

I haven't looked online only at local stores and they have a core charge so you would get some of youroney back but I believe they are rebuilt pumps

I believe advance auto wanted $60 and I could get the feed and return line for what that cost all together.i would rather spend more on mods then a pump.but ifs it's shiny it would definitely dress up the looks under the hood

Not too sure to be honest. Have you checked RockAuto?

Did you flush the ENTIRE system? Install an inline filter? Put NEW fluid in the ENTIRE system?. Same style pump on my ranger thats on the mustang. Ive used TONS of parts store pumps on ford trucks/suvs/cars over the years.. Yeah maybe one or two made noise months down the road, however the big majority of them work just like factory. Most parts stores offer Lifetime Warranty on these parts anyways, so if in 2 years it starts to get a little noisy wrench it off and swap her out.

I did flush my system. Did not put an inline filter on. But did use the correct fluid. However, 99% of the people on here all said its a normal and common issue with these yrs mustangs. However, I'm down with trying the 3F's if it makes the noise go away.

Rockauto, get whichever one is cheapest IMO. Or just convert to manual steering with a quick ratio rack and a MM/Flaming river shaft. Frees up weight and its not as hard to turn the front wheels as you think espeically if you do a bunch of weight reduction off the nose and run stock width tires in the front.

Lol, I doubt you're going to want to do that. Again, rockauto, get the best deal, should be G2G.

I recently installed a new AGR pump on my 89 GT. I followed the bleeding instructions that came with the the pump and it works great. I would definitely recommend it.

Hey 89bossGT, was your previous pump really noisy especially when turning the wheel? That's what mine does.

No it wasn't noisy. Fluid was leaking out the front seal. I researched about replacing the seal and decided that replacing the entire pump would be the better option. The original pump served me faithfully for 136,000 miles.

I did mine with a remanned cardone from local auto parts store. It works fine...had to add more fluid after about a week of driving it, that took care of squealing, since then nothing, works great, it's been on the car now for a year. Follow bleeding instructions.

Cool. Makes me wander if I buy a new one again if it will cease the squealing. Drives me nuts
