Are you sure the pump failed or is it in the steering gear valveing.

How would I check for that?

Did you get the air out of the system like in this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW0Rt_yJTow If you did everything correctly, you may have a bad rack.

Putting a pressure gauge on the power steering system is a way to test pump output, if the output is at specs then you have a bad steering rack.
