power steering pump rebuild kit

ok so yea my power steering pump is out for sure. i know where to buy a rebuild kit for it would i need any special tools? how hard would it be and would it prolly come with instructions? is it worth my money? or should i not even bother and buy a brand new pump? (limited funds)

I don't think replacing the pump will be complicated. I preformed a service on my 96' SS that you may want to do after you install the new pump. I took a turkey baster, one quart of new power steering fluid and flushed my power steering fluid. I jacked up the front of the car, with turkey baster, sucked out all the fluid from the resivoir, refilled it to the correct (cold) level, put the check stick cap back on, started the car and turned the steering wheel from lock to lock ten times. then I repeated the proccess until the fluid that I was removing was as clean as the new fluid I was putting in. I did this service as a preventative measure. You may want to do it since you are going to install a new pump. It is so simple, a cave man could do it!

good luck

I've only rebuilt earlier ones and the only issue I had with them was removing the pulley. I ended up buying a KD pulley remover tool that I recall was in the $40 range.
You might check to see if that's an issue with your model.
An alternative would be to buy a complete rebuilt one, but even on those there were times where I had to transfer the old pulley as they either weren't supplied on the pump or were different.
Other than that the rebuilds I've done were very easy. Crowsfoot type sockets help to get at the hoses on the car.
