    Replacing my PS pump and box because all the fluid leaked out on the highway...took the parts off yesterday but forgot to see which lines went into which hole in the steering box...the one from the pump, does it go on the right or left? Thanks

    If you need me to I can go run outside and look at mine and let you know which is which, my blazer is an "89" model. I do not think they would have changed anything like that from year to year.

    Ok, I just went out to look for you, the fitting closest to the frame is the pressure side. 1989 was the first year GM went to the serpentine belt set-up.

    No that would be to the box. High pressure is from pump to box, closest to fram rail to one on the outside goes to the pump

    The pressure line is crimped hydraulic fittings...the return line just uses regular hose clamps. You'll be able to tell which is which.
