Steering problem

Ok, so my sisters F350, 2002 model, is very difficult while turning the wheel at idle. Now Ford says its the gearbox that needs to be replaced. When I drive it, I need to press the accelerator pedal to raise engine rpms to increase the amount the pump is pushing so I can turn the wheel more easily. I have been told, it could be the hydro-boost causing the problem, although I have in mind maybe the pump is weak also. I am not doubting that the gearbox is bad either so all 3 could be playing a role or just 2 or even just 1 part is worn/bad.

Anyone ran into this problem?
