There isn't really much out there other than remanufactured or the super expensive PSC.

I know somebody that put a WJ steering pump in their '00.
I don't know why. He runs regular tires like me, mine is just a DD, but said the steering was hard too.
Bottom line it was nothing but problems and went back to an XJ one.
Could be user error. Who knows.

Define "easier turning" and expound upon why it would be necessary ?

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts,
not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who would pervert the Constitution” Abraham Lincoln, 1859.

The Saginaw box Jeep uses is considered the "better" box over at G-bodyForum.com. It only came on the F-41 equipped G-body cars like Monte Carlo SS, Grand National, 442, etc. But you could get it as an option on lesser models. read: https://www.motortrend.com/how-to/up...teering-cheap/ Here is a chart with some specs.
