Its probably only necessary of you have hydro assist or are desert racing.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE
AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

Most people that have coolers are running hydro asstits...the extra strain from the ram generates a lot of heat on the pump


The only advantage I can see to running a pump cooler would be increased pump life...steering pumps are cheap


...it wont do anything to increase the performance of the steering itself

I disagree, mine was a super pain to steer aired down and unlocked, I was sick of the freakin ATF overheating and blowing around the cap and jacking up the engine bay. I added a 4pass trans cooler to it and it steers better/easier and doesn't overheat anymore. Plus I got around another 1/2 quart of fluid in the system. Do it, it is cheap.

i just put one on my truck without hydro assist just for the cooling factor. it never hurts to have the extra fluid capacity and be able to cool it faster  :dunno:....plus their only about $10 from a junkyard  :thumbs:

also if you plan on going hydro assist you already have a cooler there

Filters. Never seen anyone with filters on their steering set-up.
I don't run a filter.

I run a filter, it is built into the PSC reservoir. A cooler is a good idea on any system, stock or otherwise. The eariler Toyotas with PS came stock with one, that is what that loop on the return line in front of the radiator is.

i plan to run one eventually, not only will it allow more fluid, but will also cool.. some of that will be in part to more fluid, but as it is an oil, the cooler you can keep it, the better

So the stock radiator was set up to cool the ps system?

no, the return line of the pump runs to the front of the vehicle in front of the radiator and the a/c condensor, its a metal tube that just make a sideways U shape

this is supposed to be the factory cooler

I'm thinkin my truck doesn't have that cooler because it didn't come w/ps
 I'm putting on ps, there is a chance it might have come from the factory
 and you could get the ps option from the dealer ?

if you dont have power steering, you dont have that cooler, or the lines, or the power steering pump

you can probably still get everything from the dealership, but it isn't going to be cheap... it's best to find a used setup from someone who upgraded.....

Oh I got all the parts i'm cleaning and bolting stuff on alright
 I saw a thread where somebody ask if they should put one on and
I never heard of a ps cooler so i'm just checking it out
It sounds like the right thing to do along with a filter

a cooler probably aint a bad idea...but i wouldnt worry about a filter...

just change the fluid and it should be fine...

dont forget to bleed the  PS system

You want the cooler and filter on the return line (low pressure). That is when the fluid is the hottest, after it has gone through the system and done it's work. If you put it on the high pressure side it would more then likely blow the filter apart and maybe the cooler also.

A good source for a cooler is from an 80's vintage Ford Aerostar. The cooler is located behind the front bumper. Got the one I had at P-N-P for $5.00.
