The lines are reversed AT THE RACK. The most forward fitting is pressure, the back fitting is return.

well i still havent solved my issue yet. I put a adjustable pressure regulator on the pump from heidts, and i still have the jerky back and forth movement as mentioned before. Now it just does it alot less. I am thinking there is an air lock between the pressure relief valve in the pump, and the check valve in the steering rack. I am running out of ideas very quickly

I've said it previously, but I believe your "jerking back and forth" is caused by trapped air in the system, not line reversal.

Read this thread on the FordRangerForum.

yea i thought that was the case too, but i have properly bled the rack for over 30 min. back and forth to get all the air out. Still nothing has worked, im almost thinking that this ford ranger rack will not work for me. May have to get a custom one made from unisteer
