Replacing the power steering pump,2000 Ram 2500

My power steering pump went out yesterday and I needed some feedback on how difficult and how much it cost. I also read on this forum that I should replace the vacume pump rear seal while I was there. Did I understand that correctly? It dosn't look too bad execpt I'm not too familiar with this truck. I've owned this truck for about a year an a half, LOVE IT!! Thanks for the help

Pull the vacuum pump and PS pumps as an assembly, Dont unhook the hi-pressure lines at the PS pump, follow them up where they connect to the hydroboost, and unhook them there. I've removed it as an assy in 20mins. when installing the seal pay attention to which way the seal faces, install as an assy...any other way is painfully slow

Wow, that hasn't been my experience with my high flow PSC pump. Anyone who would have seen the ridiculous dance I did after my first drive would have about died laughing! I was very impressed. Maybe you got the standard flow one? That would be an error.

Be VERY careful putting the ps pump onto the vac pump. The vac pump seal is very easy to push out.
