I used a gm power steering pump and got the bracket, hoses and converted toyota steering box from classic performance products in California  . I mounted it to my original steering shaft. Had to shorten the shaft, and column housing  and install a contact ring for the oe horn to work. I think the horn contact ring may have come from mid fifties truck parts. I installed a power steering cooler off of a explorer  behind the louvered opening in the engine compartment behind the left head light area.  I think Mummerts sells a bracket but may not have all the other stuff. You may want to check on the ratio of the steering box i know its different than toyota i think 14 to 1. I may not work with your suspension. I have a lowered spring  straight front oe non modified  syle axle.  I want to say its about 3 full turns lock to lock on a factory 56 wheel. Sometimes i think its a little over sensitive at 65 mph. I am running a 70 series tire up front that may be part of it.  That's all i can think of right now. I will keep watching the post if you have any more questions. Thanks Joe
