    I don’t remember the tools but I remember it’s a PIA job. There is very little room under there. I got mine off a ‘97 suburban and not knowing what I was doing I took the steering column out to get to the last bolt. Took like 6 hours.

    Get the 400 booster too. My mechanic put the rod from it in the 800 booster and it was relatively easy and is the cleanest way to go.

    I went with the Little Shop rear disk kit which was a good value.

    I am in the process of replacing the AC Delco (made in china junk) hydro ps pump with a performance steering P/S pump that operates at 1600 psi vs. 1200. Should give me what I want in terms of steering feel and brake feel, fingers crossed.

    Bring a 1/2 ratchet, deep socket, shallow socket, and short extensions.

    Thanks for the replies, I am going to move all this info to my build thread later today so it doesn't get lost. I bought a AC Delco hydro pump new last night, I hope it isn't junk.

    I got my pedal from the junkyard today. It already had the booster and steering column removed. Took 10 minutes, just removed the 7mm and 2 15mm bolts that hold a bracket in the way. Then the 18mm bolt through the pedal and I was done.

    Sounds like you're closer to getting put through the windshield in a panic stop.
