Power Steering Hoses

I'm replacing my leaking rack & pinion unit and my power steering pump on my 1997 Thunderbird 4.6 liter V-8, and I also want to replace the high & low pressure hoses at the same time. My question is, does anyone know which of the 2 high pressure hoses I've pictured below would be correct for a Thunderbird V-8 with speed-sensitive steering (all '97 T-Bird V-8's had speed-sensitive steering, right)? They are each listed as being for a 3.8 liter V-6 AND a 4.6 liter V-8 on different sites (I've evn seen each listed as being for BOTH engines on a single website!), and I haven't had a chance to look at my car yet due to my crazy work schedule.

Hose #1:



Hose #2:



Anyone know which one is correct for a 1997 T-Bird V-8 with speed-sensitive steering?

Thanks!

Dennis

Hose #2. Yes, all V8 cars had EVO, the hose wouldn't be effected by it though, the difference is in the pump itself.

I agree with hose #2, if in doubt look it up on rockauto they should have a picture as well.

How many mounting bushings are required for the rack & pinion unit - 2?

Thanks,

Dennis

Hose 2

Hello

Hose 1 looks like the one I use.

Came from a V6 car, however I run it with my 351w.

Two.

Depending on the source, the bushing kits have one or two bushings in them - if in doubt and mail ordering, order two and return one.
