I had the power steering pump replaced in my 91 Wrangler and it started making a really loud noise and a major vibration. Could it be a bad power steering pump, steering box, hoses or something the mechanic did?

Yes, the power steering system was bled. It was quiet for a little while. Then, all of a sudden it started making this really loud noise and you can feel a vibration in the steering wheel when I turn the wheels with the vehicle at a stop.

Well, I took the drive belt off, turned the power steering pump pulley and found it was binding. I replaced the pump and it works fine. Thanks for your help everybody.
