Default Power steering pump noise

Has anyone ever tried Lubeguard Red to quieten a power steering pump? The only reason I haven't replaced my PS pump is because I've been told that even a new one has that awful whining noise. Any other suggestions to try before a replacement? Thanks in advance.

I bought my 99 3.0 2wd at 60k with a noisy ps pump (marker on the radiator support indicated the pump was replaced at 35k) and it stayed noisy till about 210k when I did my v8 swap. now it's quiet. I never had a problem except sound. I tried several different products and the only thing I found to lessen the sound was amsoil marine gear lube but it still whined a bit. the v8 swap totally fixed it so if you want to get rid of noise completely do v8 swap.
