As to the power steering, all I can say is that it takes what seems like a million cycles of cranking the wheel back and forth, lock to lock, with the front end off the ground, until you get all the air out of it. Have a helper watch the fluid level so it doesn't get low and they can watch for air bubbles as they shake out.

If your power steering return line isn't flowing well, get a longer piece of sturdy hose from NAPA and route it a bit more gently than the one IPF includes.

And make sure to route that oil drain hose well away from the air conditioning lines. The braided steel on the drain line makes for a great saw against the aluminum of the a/c lines...found that one out the hard way.
