    ok ran a search and didnt find what i wanted it. what are the cons of the AGR powersteering pump?? are they worth the $160. some suggested running a power steering cooler and i aint gotta problem doing that, maybe even a small cooling fan.

    I wouldn't buy another AGR product if my life depended on it.

    Go with a pump from PSC if you really want a HI-PO pump

    You don't need to run an aftermarket pump or even a modded pump to run hydro assist steering. I am running hydro assist steering with my factory pump using a PSC 8" x 1.5" ram and it works flawlessly.

    well that alt to save a lil coin. and correct me if im wrong do u need to brace the frame w/ a hyrdo assited steering? isnt the cylinder mounted on the axle so it kinda takes stress of the frame?

    It's always good to have the frame braced no matter what. Yes the hydro does help to remove some of the frame stress but not all of it.

    I had bought an AGR steering box and wasn't happy with it and i've also got into the market of drilling and tapping and rebuilding steering boxs' myself and i've had a couple AGR boxs' apart now and they've turned out to be junk and not rebuildable.

    After having rebuilt both an AGR box and also factory steering boxs' i've discovered that there is NOTHING special about those HIGH PRICED AGR boxs'.

    WOW, no kidding?! I had a set up on my Powerstroke.

    Side Note: Can you tap a factory rebuilt PS gearbox for a ram assist set up? I think I saw a thread here some where that they did that.

    Well my brother has the AGR superpump and the AGR gear box. He can turn the 46"s on his M-37 with one finger. It steers so easily, almost too easily.
