Re: braided power steering hose

Ok... here's the question... is this for looks, or functionality?? If its just for looks, you can get steel braided loom that'll go right over top your factory lines... if its for functionality, then you can buy kits to make your own lines. We don't have the fittings at our shop for power steering lines, I am sure we can get them... but I wanted to get your input first
