I think the shim deal is well worth a try and if that doesn't get it, the flow reduction valve that plums in would be my next try, a lot cheaper that an after market setup. The article you attached only addressed pump pressure and I agree that if you get the spring tension low enough to bypass fluid that the speed which the wheels move when you move the steering wheel will be slowed. You have to make up in arm strength for the loss of pump pressure. Pressure is used to control the force required to move the steering wheel and if that is your problem, then the shims are your fix. However; flow output (GPM) is what controlls how fast things move. Good steering feel is a combination of several thing including the power steering pump pressure and flow rate. Good luck.
