Question for all the guys who did this rebuild -

Is anyone's power steering extremely stiff at low RPMs?

My pump is great any other time. No leaks whatsoever after the rebuild. But for some reason at low RPMs it's almost like there's no power steering at all. You got to really muscle it to get in a parking spot. Can't say it happens EVERY time but enough to where I notice it a lot.

I can't imagine what the problem is. It makes no engineering sense to me, except if the pump was underdriven. But it never happened before the rebuild on the OEM build, even when it was leaking.
