    Default '99 3/4 suburban power steering problem

    My '99 chev suburban blew a line and ran out of power steering fluid in the mountains. I had to drive several miles to get out without power steering or brakes (knowing this would damage at least the power steering pump but I had no other options). I replaced first the power steering pump, then the hydro boost and now the steering gear but I still have the same problem; when I make a tight right hand turn and brake at the same time, the brakes get soft and the power steering screams. Any ideas on my next move?

    Check GM recall bulletins, for some reason this problem rings a bell but I dont remember why. I want to say theres a check valve or something that needs to be replaced.
