Power steering problem

I have a 97 K3500 6.5. 2inch body lift currently sitting on bald and wide 33's. Every now and then when the truck is warm the power steering gives out at slow speeds. If i break-stand a little and bump the RPMs up a bit it comes back onto power steering. Fluid seems good and no visible leaks. Do i just need a new pump? should i go with a bigger pump? are there other ones you would recommend? Thanks in advance boys.

Re: Power steering problem

Probably just need a pump. More rpm it'll spin more n move more fluid...
