power steering pump vs. pulley

I'm having a little squeal starting to develop from the power steering. Can the pulley just go bad or is it the pump? I know the idler pulley has bearings that fail but didn't know if the ps pulley does also.

'97 2.5l auto with 102k miles
previous owner replaced the belt 10k miles ago.

Thanks,
Erik

I just changed both pulleys yesterday. The smaller one was worn out and loose. $35.00 for both and ten minutes of my time.

My 2002 2.5l has 105,000 miles on it. Replaced the water pump last week, worn, loose and leaking. I heard it's a good idea to replace the pulleys with the pump.
