No problem. I would normally say go oem, but I have heard a buncfh of problems with oem pumps lately. I have never heard anything bad about redhead. Yes when you call the guys may seem different or not what you'd expect, but they are helpful and didn't have any issues.
This will definitely fix the play in your steering. I had excessive play in my wheel and tightened the original with no luck. I now have zero play; might even be better than new.
I was going to get an oem pump but they were on back order about a month ago. Been doing fine. Make sure you grab 5 qts of tranny fluid and do a good flush. This will help the pump and the brakes since they both use the hydroboost unit.
There is a good flush write up running around; just look for it and you will be set. You will need a big wrench to take off the pitman arm bolt. I do not recall actual size, but its over an inch. I want to say 1-3/16" wrench, but I might be mistaken. A big cresent wrench will work also.
