Resealed Pump Noise

    The pump is making a strange noise when I turn to full lock in either
direction.  I ran the engine until warm to see if the noise would work its
way out, but no.  The front seal has a good amount of grease in between the
two lips.  Everything was nicely covered in hydraulic fluid when I put the
pump back together.  The pump also got nice and warm when I test drove the
car down the road.  This to me means some sort of BAD metal on metal
contact, but the steering feels good.  What should I check, I guess I'll
have to take the pump out and take it apart again.  It doesn't leak though!
