    general question; can the high pressure hose for power steering be repaired or should I just buy a new one? the steel portion of the power steering lines are pretty rusted and probably won't last much longer so I was wondering if I can just replace the steel sections with a rubber line between them and some clamps or is there too much pressure for that?

    EDIT: never mind, found my answer. thanks anyway

    You probably found that it's just better to buy a whole new hose. You might be able to find a place that makes hydraulic hoses make you one but when you're talking thousands of PSI of pressure and the fact that it has to have a swivel connection, it's not worth it. Buy an aftermarket hose and call it good for years and years of use.

    Yeah. I second that. Anything that involves hydraulics needs the right kind of lines and fittings. People who have tried to cheat (with power steering or brakes) have ended up very disappointed (or worse).
