I have the steeroids also Agree best upgrade I made on my 77 Hope nyou get info for the one your looking at 
I looked at the installation intructions it looks very similiar, might even be a little easier to install, it is most likely an upgrade to the steeroids. rraider12011-04-20 10:01:58

Hi,how was the installation.?Any problems with movement in the mounting brackets or so?
Some customer´s here in Sweden feel some flexing in the bracets and they have made reeinfocement and welded them to the brackets.One has even welded the brackets to the frame!!!

Maybe i don't drive mine hard enough. I have not felt any looseness or negative aspects since the install. But I went from a worn out steering box and a bad steering control valve. Mine has been in about 3 years now. I know a few here have it installed and I have not seen any post with those types of issues
