Default did all fbodies come with the PS cooler?

i was reading the long thread where the PS cooler would mix with coolant and the remedy for that is getting the small aftermarket PS oil cooler instead. i just got underneath the car and noticed the 2 rubber hoses lines coming from the pump and reservoir converts to think steel fittings and goes into the bottom where the steering linkage is?
some info, the car was originally a v6 with ls1 motor/trans swap. so is the power steering on the v6 never came with a ps cooler from factory?

From what I understand it came standard on SS's and WS6's in '98, then it became an option on F-Bodies other than WS6's and SS's in 99-01, then all the LS1 F-Bodies came standard with them in '02. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I do recall reading that some time ago on here.

yea i've been reading up on that thread. didnt know the v6 didnt get one from factory and the fact the original person who swapped the motor/trans didnt use the ps cooler with the steering rack.

Close. The stock cooler became standard by 2000: http://www.gmhightechperformance.com...all/index.html
