Now when you go to certain auto part places they will give you the wrong part, because you can't get the EVO on them no more. GM quit making power steering pumps on them in late 97. So you will need to check the power steering pump before going to purchase a new one, and see if it has a EVO on it. You get a new pump that has a bypass pipe on it from Oreiley's, and Napa.
