i dont know how important it is or if there are facotry replacements but it seems like you could get any trans cooler and hook it up to keep it even cooler. Ive never done it but it seems like it should work, lets see what others have to say

I think if it were me I’d use this as an opportunity to improve and get a bigger cooler to replace it with. Don’t forget that the steering pump also powers the brakes.

if i put a bigger cooler on there would it help my braking at all? I might just use a universal cooler as a replacement. Would that work?

i dont think it would make it stop any quicker but the pump and other parts might last longer. Id go for a universal cooler.
good luck

I put a universal one on a work truck that I smashed. The steering and brakes totally went out. The universal one worked fine.

so long as it serves the perpous of cooling the fluid... powersteering fluid sould be simular to auto trans fluid, a small tranny cooler would work fine in my opinion...

Yeah I agree, and I don't think the fluid would get as hot as tranny.
