it all started by having to replace my power steering pump this morning (second in a week) then coming back from my shop, get pulled over and get a fuckin vehicle inspection, for my bumper being to fuckin high, then went wheelin, which was all good untill the new power steering pump blew up :mad: So I had to replace it again go fuck yourself I guess on the plus side I'm gettin pretty good at replacing P/S pumps.

what is your GVW?
the 29" thing is for really light vehicles and an f350 is not light
you can effortlessly raise your gvw to 5100kg and be beyond those regs

Yesterday was Sunday. Next day shipping really means "next Business day". Complaining about that is like complaining that you can't buy booze at the liquor store on sunday.

Oh yeah, I am fully aware that it can and will continue to be a huge problem to not be able to buy booze on sunday. But do you see me blaming the liquor store? NO, I blame GOD.

hydraulic ram assist steering should solve that problem.

If you're talking Ford C2, look at http://www.broncotech.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=011852;p=1

I didn't do that conversion (it was too easy I suppose), but Napa shows the part 20-6244 at around $160cdn, and after doing my C2 to Saginaw conversion on my Ranger, I wonder why it took me so long to get around to it. In my case, it gave me a 50% line speed improvement on my hydraulic winch (and about the same improvement in power steering).

[edit] smaller pulley will give more fluid flow (but no more pressure) at lower engine speed.....may help you.
