POWER STEERING ISSUE

2002 Jeep Liberty • 6 cylinder 4WD Automatic • 15,500 miles

2002 jeep liberty 3.7L six cylinder Engine -power steering pump failure. This is the about the third time I am-- actually this will make it the 4th time in about 1.5 years I am replacing it. The last time by a certified repair facility.I also had the hi-pressure steering hose replace due to leakage. What else could cause this failure.I did notice I have to keep a bit of right steering pressure to keep the car straight, but I did not feel as though it was that pronunce enough to cause problems, besides now I am just stabbing in the dark.I appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks

Are these pumps under warranty?

What is nature of pump failure? Internal damage? Leaking? Noises? Is system being flushed out before new pumps installed? Was rack ever changed?
