Thanks so much for this thread: it's EXACTLY what I was looking for! I had power steering lines hacked together by a local guy and he did a crap job, so they leak. I'm going to go this route and make my own out of stainless...thanks so much for taking the guess work out of the lines and fittings!

I think I'm going to make the return line SS as well, however. I also need to make the pump intake line stainless, as mine is leaking a bunch...so I guess it'll be 100% stainless system if I can find hoses big enough to go from the resevoir to the pump.

thanks again...this is great info!!!
Glad this could be of help to you. I think we tried to look for banjo bolts first, but couldn't find the correct thread pitch.

apparently reading comp > you because if you read the rest of the thread, I said it works just fine on my car.

would the regular summit brand hoses work? I think power steering systems are roughly 250psi...and the summit hoses hold 1000. The russel ones posted in the first post are rated to 2500psi....but that seems like overkill.
The line I used was teflon line which the guy at Summit said is designed for power steering fluid. I think the line in the link you posted is rubber. All the fittings I posted in the first post are for teflon line. You will need fittings for rubber lines if you go with that line.
