Hello,
Picked up a hydroboost power steering hose kit.
The kit has 4 hoses ..2return lines rated at 250lbs.
2 supply lines to be cut to length with over 4,000lb rating with 90s crimped on 1 end.
After cutting, the vender claims push lock fittings go on the high pressure ends.
Anyone use these for this application?

What is the S, in Custom S ?

I've not used the push lock ends, but that sounds like custom AC systems i've used. One end of the hoses has nothing, you cut to length and mark the fittings (if they're not straight), then take to a parts store that crimps hoses and have them crimp the other ends on.

Have you made this kit fit perfectly? A buddy here is looking to get a hydroboost power steering hose kit as well. We will install it right after we finished installing the centerline alloy wheels and new tires on the current truck project.
