Power Steering

i have a 1998 4.0 and my PS pump has the famous whine, i was wondering if i bought a new PS pump would that one have the whine? would it eventually have one?
Thanks Anthony

I used that lucas stop whine stuff in mine and it quieted it down quite a bit. still noticeable, but doesn't sound like the truck is screaming when you turn.

I just bought a remanufactured one from the autoparts store for my 2.5L. It sounds even worse than my old one. Now I get the pleasure of pulling it back off. FML
