    Yes I did search but I just wanted to get a straight answer. I need to replace the power steering pump, booster and mc on my truck (they are bad) So according to tthe searches to convert non hydroboost to hydroboost you have to replace the pump, booster, mc, and lines correct. That is it. If so I will just upgrade to hydroboost.

    Thats it, I just put it on my truck from a CUCV, works great. I know some people have said that they needed to replace the brake pedal too, but mine hooked right up (its a 89). If you do need to brake pedal let me know I still have it in the garage, also when I pulled it off the CUCV the brake had a spring connected to it that pulled it toward the driver, my 89 didnt so now the lights will stay on, I picked a spring set at Advance as its good to go

    Please hold that pedal for me just in case I would greatly appreciate it. I have a 79 shortbox. I figure I will get a pump, booster,mc, and lines for an 85 1 ton.Then I will use the 2wd drive box i bought last year (85 truck 2wd) And all should be good.
