03 F350 6.0 lost brakes and power steering

So i have been reading about this and have learned this is related to the hydro boost or the Power steering Pump. I have no squeal from the power steering pump or pulsating brake pedal. I was coming home when i pulled up in front of the house. I came to a stop put truck in reverse to back in and had stiff brake pedal and no power steering. Fluid is full and i see no leaks. I need to know if there is a way to tell if it is the hydro boost or the power steering pump. I can not afford to take it to dealer so need to fix this my self. Thanks

LOSS OF P/B & P/S

If you lost both of them at the same time, I would say it is the P/S pump that quit making pressure. That's the one component that is common to both the brakes & the steering.

I am not sure but from what i have read it could be a stuck valve in the Hydro Boost or it could be a failed pump. I would of thought the pump would of gave some sort of sign it was going out. I think i will replace the pump first since it is the least expensive unit to replace.

Thanks
