Icon4 Power steering help!!

hey you guys,
i had tha dreaded chirping problem for a while and ended up replacing alot! I replaced the Idler pulle(twice), the bel tensioner pulley(twice), the whole tensioner itself, & the Powersteering pump with a new pulley. Finally i took off the alternator cause the pulley itself was Magnatized, went and tested it at autozone and heard that chirping sound. so i ended up replacing that too.

however, NOW i am getting a really ugly sound from the powersteering pump.
i dont konw if its the acutally power steering pump or what but it sounds like its of oil!
i topped it off yest, and still the same thing. It never made this soudn before i replaced it. i would every now and then sound ugly when i turned the wheels, but thas normal (im assuming). its sounds louder when i accelerate, and quites down when im off the gas, and silent when im turning the wheels... Can anyone help me with this?

should i replace the High pressure hose too?
