I think I may have posted this issue in here before, but 2 months ago I was having problems with my power steering and power breaks, I put a remain pump in it and it seemed to fix the problem I was having. Now up till about a week ago I noticed I wasn’t able to turn while sitting still, and my power steering was slowly getting harder to turn. Today on my way home I was having trouble making a sharp turn and I noticed that my breaks will only work at about 10% When you push the peddle and then it gets hard as a rock and will not stop..
could it be my power steering pump again or do I have a bigger problem?

Not being able to turn the wheels with the brakes applied is a common issue with the PS/hydrovac system on our trucks. The hydrovac steals pressure from the power steering gear.

But if your brake assist is going away, your hydrovac unit may be going bad.
