Default 4Runner PS pump - Chinese?

The factory PS pump in my '98 4Runner (222K miles) is moaning loudly at idle. I have changed the fluid, cleaned the return screen, and tried Lucas PS additive.

It has plenty of boost, but is obnoxiously loud. The factory pump is ~$357 and a 'all new' Chinese clone with reservoir is $71. Any thoughts? I'm not going to keep the truck another 300K miles.

Has anyone tried these?

Thanks - Steve

The ChiCom parts store pumps are throw-aways, at least on a wheeling rig, but may survive long enough on the street.

I replaced one on my 97 with an AutoZone remanned at 250ish k and it lasted through wheeling and daily driving till the head gasket went at 343k with no issues.

Parts to avoid from parts stores from my experience would be master cylinders, calipers, batteries, coils and spark plug wires.
