Comments about CARQUEST Power Steering 5/16" Male O-Ring x 16MM Male O-Ring:
It does NOT replace upper and lower. It isn't nearly long enough for that. The pump end of the hose IS the correct thread and diameter, and it IS shaped correctly, and that's good. What's NOT good is the gearbox end of this hose. Some of these vans were equipped with Hydroboost. What that is, is a Brake Assist system that uses power steering fluid under pressure (from the power steering pump) to help stop the van. It then relays remaining pressure to the power steering gearbox. This is why there is an upper and lower hose. The gearbox end of this hose is nowhere near long enough to replace the all steel-gearbox line. What's worse, is the all steel-gearbox end of the line, is still available! What are you guys thinking? Why isn't the normal hose available? This retro-active-redesign-nonsense is what's going to put you guys out of business. The factory designed it, LEAVE IT ALONE!
