The increased turning torque will turn up 37 tall tires without the need of cylinder assist. Changed also is the sector shaft diameter.This has been increased from 35mm to 45mm to handle the extra torque output. Included in the kit is a new pitman arm that mates to the larger sector shaft. Note the pitman arm is a OE replacement and has no extra drop to it. All mounting areas of the BIG BORE XD are beefed up significantly.
The BIG BORE XD weighs in 15 pounds heavier than the OE steering gear. Improved on road ability is achieved by changing to a slower 16:1 turning ratio. The BIG BORE XD was engineered for use of a high-pressure pump-1800 PSI. PSC highly recommends the use of their HIGH FLOW/PRESUURE pump kits designed for BIG BORE XD applications.
These pumps operate at 1800 psi and produce 50% more volume per revolution than the OE pump. The factory OE steering pump operates at 1500 PSI and will operate the system, however you will not be benefiting from the full potential of the steering gear. Steering could feel worse if your OE steering pump has been overheated or has high mileage.Always use a power steering fluid cooler and PSC recommended power steering fluid. The larger size of the BIG BORE XD may interfere with some aftermarket track bars. Hemi engine conversions-if your AC or power steering pump is on the bottom drivers side of the engine, there might be some clearance issues. LS3 Conversions-the alternator will need to modified for clearance.
