GEN 1 Ford Raptor High-Performance Power Steering Pump Kit
The Ford Raptor is an awesome vehicle. Unfortunately, the power steering system can only handle street and light off-road usage. When you start aggressively driving it or add larger diameter tires the pump falls short, starts to howl and eventually fails. The problem starts with the poorly designed reservoir and it is flimsy attachment to the fan shroud. After it shakes around a bit and the oil gets airated and heat builds up which cannot be dissipated by the even more poorly designed cooling system. There are also shortcomings in the pump design, which are only made worse by the overheated oil, and the failure begins.
The Lee replacement system starts with our 8-inch finned reservoir securely mounted in front of the core support for oil storage and better cooling all in one.
We couple that with our tried and true Lee cast iron TC pump with custom flow control outlet, high flow inlet, billet aluminum pulley and billet aluminum adapter bracket. Also, part of the system is a Lee inline 6 GPM oil filter with replaceable element to ensure no unwanted particles are ever in the system.
The kit comes complete with the pressure hose, return hose, -12 oil inlet line and all mounting hardware.
The system is also designed to eliminate the annoying hydraulic vibration that occurs when replacing the stock lines.
Fits GEN 1 Raptors (2010-2014)
It is HIGHLY recommended to use our specialty formulated Lee Power Steering Fluid.
AC Delco or Valvoline non synthetic power steering fluid will work as a second choice but do not have the same Wear and Anti-Foaming additives our fluid has.
DO NOT USE ATF OR ANY TYPE OF SYNTHETIC FLUID.
This product will be shipped between 5-7 business days from when order is placed.
This power steering pump is such an improvement on the OEM. It’s very smooth and quiet for the most part even at full turn. I should’ve done this long ago.
Install went well. Over all instructions were easy to follow. Being familiar with how things work will make installation easier. Lee Power Steering is easy to get a hold of to answer questions as well
System went in well. Design is well thought out and a much improvement over the stock setup. Thank you for a great product.
Steering is brisk and effortless now. the old Ford pump blew a low pressure line off the cooler, and smoked the pump. I had Ford Dealer install, and the mechanic was very happy with the detailed instructions and ease of installing. Best Ford Dealer ever! They didn't charge me for install, since they could not locate a Ford Pump! Lee Power Steering was fast to ship and easy to work with.
1. Took @ 4.5 hours, but that's because i took my time.. 2. Pump was easy to purge lines, and remove air bubbles. 3. Reservoir Contains a lot more Fluid and cools great. 4. Hoses are Thick, tuff, and tight. Test drove my 2010 Ford Raptor with Mid Perch, and 35"s in 12" of Snow and clock to clock with the wheel, and donuts, and jumps,and it was still Cool....
