Hey guys, I'm looking at replacing the alternator on my EL Fairmont Ghia, the two places I've asked at have quoted me on Bosch or Mitsubishi alternators, is there a difference between the two? There is in price.

Regardless, will both still fit and work without issues? The guy said one has a higher output by 10A.

Thanks much.

Power steering is leaking onto it, after a long idle with all the lights on etc it sits on like 11V, so I'm going to replace it, plus it looks to be the original Ford one.

I have the replacement power steering hose here.
