Default 2003 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner SR5 Power Steering Pump?

My personal mechanic and a Toyota mechanic have both told me that there is a leak coming from the Power Steering Pump. For right now, it's not a big issue but over time it will become a big deal. Toyota told me that the pump itself is $349.00! Does that price sound about right or should I shop around elsewhere? Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

The price sounds about right. You could also try get a second hand pump but it wont have any guarantee like the new one and you wont know if it even works until you put it on( by which time you have already spent the money). I know that the new part is expensive but if anything goes wrong you can take it back.
