Power steering

I keep reading about switching from manual to power steering. Lets say I was going with an LS1 swap, has anyone done one of these and swapped out to power steering?

Re: power steering

i just did the exact swap. I used a 3rd gen cardone box, the ls1 pump (f car) and a 4th gen high pressure hose... (had to straighten out the box/rack side of it with a tubing bender, but both fittings are correct) left the pum side as factory. Get a mid-90s s-10 return line nipple for the box (autozone/rock auto) and some 3/8 power steering line for the return. you will need to do the rag joint and pitman arm at the same time. (Rag joint for 77-82 C/K truck - pitman arm MOOG K6582)
