95 YJ Power steering trouble with instal of new Steering Stabalizer
I have a 95 2.5 liter YJ with stock suspension.
I recently installed all 4 new Monroe shocks.
All went well.
I decided I should go ahead and install a new Monroe steering stabilizer.
After installing the new steering stabilizer, I am now getting a groan from the power steering pump when turning. Especially when standing still and turning the wheel. Very similar sound to when you turn your wheel all the way to one side as far as you can go.
It was mild at first, but now it seems to have increased with the cold weather.
The pump is laboring very hard and I can feel it in the steering.
Is it possible the new stabilizer is just too stiff or defective?
Can this damage my power steering pump if not taken care of quickly?
I had no problems prior to installing the new stabilizer.
If anyone has had a similar issue please let me know how you took care of it.
