    How would a shop know the correct bends? I am thinking junkyard might be best bet

    the bends arent critical, as long as you get the length correct, you could bend to fit kinda like a brake line no?

    I have done this rack install on the way cheap. I was able to reuse bumpsteer parts and all the high dollar parts I kept from a car that I had to part. So I have 43 bucks in lines, 40 for powdercoat and still need a cooler.

    Of course it has taken longer than it should but whatever.

    Maybe the manual rack and shaft will sell then, Ill be makin money! (lol)

    maybe take a coat hanger and cut/bend it to form a pattern and have them fab it up like you want it?

    but sounds like you got it figured out anyway, i know the local places all can get the high pressure hoses (i put a new one on last year when i put in a new rack), i never did find the low-pressure one though.
