2000 Power Steering into a 98?

Looks like the newer Power Steering pump does not have the same leak issues as the older pumps.
Are you seeing fewer leaks on the new pumps?

i've never replaced one of the new pumps, not sure if it's because average age/mileage is less or they are more robust though, i have no idea.
one reason may be the reservoir o-ring that always leaks is now gone. every single leaking power steering pump i've seen leaks at the oring between the reservoir and pump. the new system doesn't have that any more, the hoses are likely more robust. so that means fewer system leaks and fewer systems run low on oil.
