Power Steering question, 67 Impala

I have a 67 Impala with power steering, and I was wanting to upgrade. I was looking for less play in the steering wheel and to get that firm tighter feel when driving. I found a delphi kit here Is this a good solution? Also, it wants me to pick between 2.5 and 3.5. I feel stupid, but I have no clue which one I need or what those numbers are even referring to lol

If there is a better or less expensive choice that would be great.

Thanks

Well, I don't have any idea what they mean and I don't feel stupid. It's because they should make things clearer, their marketing dept should feel stupid not you and I!

I have no friggin idea what they mean, the text clearly states that this box is 2.5 turns lock to lock. It doesn't say it comes in 2.5 and 3.5. There is one part number and one description which says 2.5. So it makes no sense what so ever to me.

Email them and let them explain, if they want to sell a steering box they will do that for you. When you find out, post it here I am curious to know what that is for.

I sent them a message, if you want to wait, I'll post the info. This really got my curiosity, am I missing something? Or is it simply poor catalog design? We will find out.

That steering box will certainly work, though it is pricey. A less expensive solution is to have your stock box rebuilt with a quick ratio gearset. I've used Power Steering Services several times and have been very happy with their service. Cost is about half of the box you posted.
