steering is starting to get a bit heavy and getting a bit of noise when turning the steering wheel. just wondering what you guys think - could it be pump or rack! would you advise buying new or second hand parts! and my final question is how much are new parts! secondhand they're about 2 hundy each TIA

hey we've got a VS, same thing, husband mechanic says pump needs recon but he can't be bothered so we just pour some kind of additive into the power steer pump. Lucas or something. Don't quote me on the product.
