    civic 96-00's power steering pump is compatible with the 01-06 models. And it costs around 2.5k from bilal ganj, thats almost half as much as the latter models pumps.

    So many ppl tend to replace their power pumps with the cheaper variant.

    It doesn't work for long though..and is harder.

    You should check the power pump of the mentioned civic...if it resembles your 97's power pump, then you've found the reason for the hard steering.

    Your 97 is 200 odd kg lighter than the 2004 civic. Your power steering pump may be enough for your civic, and may not be enough for anything heavier.

    There could be several reasons for a hard or stiff steering, the culprit could be the pressure pump either leaking or not creating the required pressure, the steering box it self or wider tires being installed. Does it get any softer by increasing the RPM at idle?
