Idler arm bearing kit

I purchased idler arm bearing kit-"poor man's power steering"-but now thinking of going with power steering anyway. Should I still install the kit? Will it assist the power steering? And the instructions I received with the kit are not too clear-anyone have photos of the installation of the idler bearing kit?

Can't comment on weather or not to use with power steering, but Danchuk has instructions on their website that are pretty clear. I bought the kit from them, haven't put it on yet but I removed the old idler arm bushings and let me tell you they are a pain. Took the one in the center link out with an air chisel but the one in the idler arm itself I had to burn the rubber out and then use a carbide burr to cut the sleeve in half....and then still use the air chisel.
