Car has rebuilt pressure line and all new hoses, fluid, pump, etc but new pump started making noise after an hour. No leaks and no hard spots in steering so I dunno what to think. Can a bad rack cause this? And, can the rack even be removed with the engine in? I heard it was a PITA or impossible...' specially with a V8, lol.

I removed the rack from my V8 CQ with the engine in place. the intake has to come off and you'll need a set of S shaped wrenches.

What pump are you running again? the ABZ pump?

I'm using an ABZ or 40v pump, which is maybe 10 psi higher than the V6 pump. So maybe that blew out the rack, I dunno :P
