    Not sure I've ever had a PS pump get noticeably weak, usually they just leak or get noisy. Mostly the noise comes from wear, which happens when the leak causes them to run really low on fluid.

    Sticky U joints in the steering shaft will also make it do this. The 90s cars seem prone to having them rust up.

    the chokes usually want ~9v or so off the alternator stator. 12v makes them open too fast.

    Does it smoke black or grey when it starts to do this? Thats a sign of over-fueling. Could be stuck choke, improperly adjusted fuel mix, leaky needle seat, float level set wrong, or too much fuel...

    honestly I have never had a HEGO code that was actually because of a bad sensor. If it says its lean, usually it really is lean.

    If the engine isn't warmed up, you might get codes for these too....

    Is the regulator actually damaged? Its a big metal contraption, and rarely has any failure unless someone did something stupid to it. Usually about all it needs is the guide bushings replaced.

    I've not had great luck with re-using front endlinks. They break a lot of the time. If yours aren't rusted and they come apart though, you're good.
