power steering pump update

hi
took the car to the garage this morning. the problem is the bearings in the pump. they also topped up the fluid which has improved the steering. options are to keep going till it gets worse and then replace the pump. so are they easy to get hold of. another option is a place in Huddersfield who recondition pumps. any ideas.
cheers

One from a 350Z should fit and i think one of the Nissan 4+4 use the same engine.

hi
since the power steering fluid was topped up the noise has gone and the steering is better. not sure if this temporary and coincidental
cheers

just see how you get on with it mate, if you don't need a new pump then there's no point in buying one, I only swapped mine because it was noisey and had worn the bearings in the pulley.
