    my belt is squeaking and the water pump pulley has some vibration. 2000 chevy 1500. my question is would replacing the pulley be a fix or would i need to replace the whole water pump

    Chances are that the vibration is due to a bad bearing in the pump not a bad pulley. I don't know that I have ever seen a water pump pulley go bad.

    remove the belt and check all pulley bearings , also before going to buy the parts .
