Chevy truck rack n pinion

I put a 2001 Chevy 1/2 ton rack n pinion in my '88 1/2 ton and the steering is really stiff. Used the stock power steering pump. Do I need to change the pump pressure?? Any help would be appreciated.........

the 2001 more than likley uses a pump with variable assist,the 88 does not,most gm pumps put out 1100/1200 psi the variable assist pump changes the pump pressure more so at low speeds,like turning into a parking space,and less pressure at higher speeds,less required,hpoe this helps
