power steering return lines, where to get 'em?

I have 2 places that I found that have something that looks oem

I am unsure if these will work with the OEM return elbow I have that comes off the rack. Do I have to buy an after market return elbow? Has anyone replaced this hose with after market? I have a 4.6 with cooler btw just to be clear.

That line is from the PS reservoir to the cooler.

Some one please show me where the fvck to get the line from the rack to the cooler, no custom stuff right now just an oem equivalent replacement and I guess Napa is gonna have one of those hoses in stock for no one then since I asked for one.

I'm just trying to fix my leaky line. I don't want something from the junkyard either its just going to cost me nearly as much for some old line.

Honestly you are better off taking the stock line off, cutting the crimps off, and using transmission cooler line with hose clamps.

Explain which crimps you are talking about, I wish I had a picture to that would really explain things. Do you mean so you can reuse the hardline in the middle of the stock line? How much of a pain is that to do? I only get 2 days off a week and its either wait forever to do this myself or pay a shop before that.

The crimps are what holds the rubber line to the steel line, and yes that's the idea. The return is low pressure so its an acceptable method as a fix.
