today i took the power steering rack out of a parts car( with hardlines), and swapped into my manual steering 86' with the EJ22 in it. one thing EVERYONE should know is that the EJ type power steering pumps will BOLT UP DIRECTLY to the older EA style power steering hardlines. only a little bending is required. for those with power steering stock, you dont have to worry aobut trying to keep your power steering IF you do the EJ conversion to your car. just thought this info should be out there. just remember to grab the right power steering pump bracket, so you dont have to go BACK to the junkyard 10 miles away to get it.

i was skeptical at first, but it does work like it was made to do so. now no-one can use the excuse "i searched but it didnt tell me."

Wait, now i'm confused.

Did you use an EJ rack and lines in an EA car? and if so which one, 81/82?

Second, i have the EJ pump, with the rest of the engine natch, and the EA lines, but they don't fit together, the hard line is too long.

Don't know about the ea82 rack, but to use the ea81 power steering rack I've seen success welding the hardlines together(didn't think that would work), and using the lines out of an ea81 turbo should work, that pump has outputs just like the ea82, not the funky long pump that came on the ea81 n/a blocks, you need to add about 13" to those lines.

i used an early legacy PS pump (1990-1994 i believe) with the EA rack and EA hardlines. all i had to do was bend and twist a tiny bit to get them to line up correctly. also, if you have a charcoal canister, ditch it, it will be in the way. the newer legacy and impreza pumps have a bigger bolt pattern on the PS bracket. if you know how to flare the PS hardlines, i would do it. there is enough flexibility in the hoses that you can twist it just right, but you have to bend the hardlines a little closer to make it fit really good. and make sure it wont rub on anything.
