    2. Remove the high pressure hose that ran from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion.

    3. Remove the return line that ran from the rack and pinion to the power steering cooler.

    5. Now that everything has been removed you are now ready to install your new IFS power steering box and your hoses. After installing your IFS gearbox, you will want to route, measure, and cut a piece of the blue low pressure return line from the IFS box to the factory power steering cooler.
6. Next you will take your remaining length of low pressure return line and run it from the power steering cooler to the power steering reservoir.
