Any of you guys have pics of braided power steering hoses? I have the fittings from MM but unsure of what type of fittings and hose type to purchase.

Due to the pressures involved you have two choices:

1. power steering hose such as Aeroquip AQP hose

or

2. Teflon lined braided hose i.e. TFE hose. Again Aeroquip makes it so does Earls and Russell.

You need -6AN size. Make sure there is no restriction on the return side or else you will have problems.

Since the return side of a PS system sees little or no pressure then that hose will work fine. I used some -6 teflon hose and steel fittings to make up a pressure hose for my race car. I used rubber hose that was compatable with PS fluid for the return side. I only used crimp connectors to secure the hose to the barbed fittings.
