Default Steering rack hard lines

I am looking for a tool, or pre-made hard lines that have this OEM shape



any idea how to make them, or what this type of connection is called?

I wish you the best of luck... FHS Racing (UK) manufactures fittings to convert to -6AN but they are not at all cheap.

There are a few fitting manufacturers (Earl's, etc.) that make things similar to this, but nothing I found was an exact fit.

You need to contact them - they also will need payment via wire; they don't take a credit card.

That looks like the high pressure power steering line. What are you trying to do?

I wanted to replace mine with an aftermarket line but couldn't find any of the shelf solutions so i had to have a local company use the OEM connection and braise a new high pressure line on.

This is what I used. I didn't like it as it aluminium and first time I tried I ripped the oring and had redo it. But in the end it worked and doesn't leak.

If I recall correctly - $75 each and you need 3 (2 at the rack, 1 at the steering cooler), plus a Goodridge adapter at the pump.
