Default Power Steering Filter

I'm looking to add an inline power steering fluid filter to my power steering system. Which line does it go in? Fluid flowing from pump to gear or from gear to pump?

Thanks

If you feel the need to add one it should be in the return line (to the pump). Although I'm not sure what conditions you see that make you want to add a filter.

Just looking to add some longevity to my steering system. A $30 filter is much cheaper than a new gearbox or pump. Thanks for the info.

Do you have a cooler? Or a secondary resi? If not than that's what I would add to extend life. The cooler the better!

Install it on the low pressure return line, I've installed them at work before, we do it whenever the pump, gear box, or rack and pinion internally fails, and has possibly let metal shavings or debris into the system

Do you use an inline trans filter?
