Default 08 Power Steering Pump?????

So my power steering pump was going bad so I bought a new one on ebay with a pulley. When it arived the pully on the pump was a good inch bigger than the factory so obviously the serpintine belt wouldn't go back on. To make a long story short I bought a pulley for an '07 which was the same as the one on the old pump on the '08. Problem is now the truck is squealing really bad when it is running. So i guess my question is would all power steering pumps be the same from '03-08 or are they different for '08 and why???? For some reason the auto part stores around here have a different listing for '08. This has been really frustrating...any help would be appreciated.

I had the same problem on one of my older dodges with the steering pump. All of these manufacturers just come out with these parts that they try their hardest to make universal and sure sometimes they fit but arent close to the same as how they came out of the factory. Only way to be certain that you get a direct fit would be to give the dealership your vin number and get the exact part. Thats what I did because I got so fed up.
