If the power steering pump goes out on 99 suburban do you loose power brakes also?
If you have a hydroboost brake system (on 3/4 ton diesel and some 3/4 ton 454 trucks) you will not have power brakes if you loose the power steering pump. However, if you have any motor besides the 6.5 diesel or 7.4l, you have vaccume assisted power brakes. You can tell which you have by looking at the firewall where the master cylinder is, if you have a large round pancake looking thing attached to the back of the master cylinder you have vaccume brakes, if you have a small hydraulic gizmo (you can tell by the three power steering lines attached to the sides of it) you have Hydroboost brakes that operate off of the power steering pump.

Brakes are wimpy steering wheel wont turn at all unless you give it gas f350 07?
I suggest getting a new power steering pump. If your truck has a hydroboost set up, which it probably does being its a F350, The power steering pump supplies fluid to the steering box and the brakes for more braking power. To find this out, look at your power steering pump. There should be 3 hoses coming out of it. One Supply line, and 2 Return lines. The supply line should go to the steering box, then to the hydroboost which is on the firewall, driver side. It's not huge like the vacuum boosters. Then there should be one return line coming from the booster to the pump and one from the steering box going back to the pump. I hope this helps you out.
