How to silence the power steering whine?

My 99 3.8L has developed a very loud power steering whine all the time. Used to be just when turning to extremes. Now its all the time. Is the pump wearing out? I dont seem to have any more steering effort. I thought I read a post somewhere that you can replace the pump with a ford OEM and it will be quiet. Any body know if its true? Supposedly its caused by inferior quality knock off pumps. I bought my car used to Im not sure if its original or not.
