Power Steering Pump for 2006 Sti

Hello Everyone,
I am in a bit of a delema. I need to replace my steering pump on my 2006 STI, but it appears that Subaru discontinued the part and replaced it was a newer pump and an adapter. While this is fine, the only place i can find the parts is the dealership and I would like to avoid paying $600 for a power steering pump.

Has anyone found a good place to buy replacements? I have tried all of the normal auto part stores with no luck.

Thanks

Hammer Gaidin

EDIT:
For anyone's knowledge or just to have it out there. The new part numbers are listed below.
STI Ps Pump(After Revision): 34430FE042
PS Pump Bracket (After Revision): 34446AG020

Yea, on there they have just a WRX pump listed. Looks like it's the same though? Still $400+ is outrageous for a power steering pump.

Call the dealer and ask if the part#'s are different for each (I don't think they are, but always a possibility).

Also, look on nasioc for a car being parted out.

There is another place, google Fred Bean parts or something like that. They got good prices and are easy to deal with.

I could never find parts for my 07 at a junkyard.... And Texas has an abundance of yards.

So far, the best price i have found is actually Amazon. It's actually from a dealership, but it $399 + shipping with the adapter plate/bracket. I'm going to keep looking....

Try Brad's Auto & Truck Parts Megacenter

If it's not on the drop downs, call them.

I have found a few pieces there.

Yea, I'm not saying that was hard. I just have no interest in a used pump. Especially if they revised the design.

Thanks though.

And I'm assuming the WRX and STI pumps are the same. EJ255 and EJ257 alot of things are compatible. What did they change hammer gaidin? Do you know? Because I will be in your shoes if mine ever breaks.

My gf bought a power steering pump online for $100 used and the seller shipped 2 pumps just in case one didn't work right. The 1st one that went in is still in there today. We need to sell the other pump (which is actually the wrong model, it's for an '05).
