Default SS braided power steering lines

Iím trying to find out what parts/fittings I need to replace my power steering lines w/ stainless ones. Do I have to by a pre-maid power steering line to handle the pressure or can I use AN fittings and line.
What do I need and where do I get it???
Thanks,
Jared.

Well on my '99 the hoses are built into these solid lines. I don't think you can use AN fittings. BUT what I did was I took it to a shop that custom makes SS lines and stuff, gave them my old lines and they attached those solid lines to the SS. COnsufing?

I believe you can replace them with AN fitting lines and whatnot, but they have to be able to handle a decent amount of pressure, otherwise it'll make a damn big mess when the power steering is pressurized.

JC Sports (don't groan... they had some good products, just horrid service) made stainless power steering lines for those that actually got their kits on the GB they did a year and a half ago because the lines were heavily in the way.

Default JC Sports lines

I have some of these JC Sports lines that came with my kit and they are pretty skettchy. I don't think they would even work. I am installing my kit on a differant car though and I am going to give them a shot this time for a cleaner install than on my last car. I have a feeling that the threads on the line won't be correct for bolting to the steering rack, will find out soon. But on the top end for the pump I will have to get creative for how they connect.

I don't see why stainless a/n lines would'nt take the pressure, The material is pretty much the same as a brake line, and stock ones are rubber.

You said a/n right? those are npt on one side & a pressure fitting on the other. The powersteering only has major pressure on the pump outlet side, The other side is pressurized but clamps should be fine.

I knew a guy with one of those kits and those lines, he ran them for a good 9 months without problems. Then he sold the kit to another friend of mine who installed them and has had them on for another good 6 months without problems. *shrug*

Default Any Ideas

Do you remember how he connected them at the pump? With my set one has threaded fittings on both ends and the other has threaded fittings on only one and then just a clamp on the other end. I looks to me like you would have to cut the rubber hose off of the hard metal part and then clamp the lines on? This would mean removing the threaded fitting off of one end of one of them.

all the fittings cam with the lines, one of them actually replaces the stock pressure line fitting into the pump.
