Power Steering Conversion

In the process of gathering parts for converting my manual steering to power steering. I have been reading posts and some say that I need a different steering rod to connect to the new power steering box and some say that I can use the existing steering rod that is currently manual steer. Can someone share some light on this please.

No you don't need to a different steering rod. I started this thread back when I did the conversion. It's not a build thread, but maybe it will help. Keep in mind, your '89 2.5L, is a lot different than my '94 2.5L. So you won't need a remote reservoir type of pump.
