Power Steering Killed its self.

so i was drivin on the highway and when i was exiting i noticed my brakes where vibrating when i pumped them and my steering was really stiff. I opened up the hood and there was power steering fluid everywhere. my question is- how much does a pump cost and hows hard is it to replace?

Don't make the same mistake as I did. I had the same thing happen and assumed it was the pump. Bought a new pump and when I pulled out the old one, realized the fluid was coming from a hose that was rubbing on some metal and wore a hole it it.
