    Suspension Power Steering Hydraulic Transfer Line Sizes?

    I’ve got a 93 GT. Hydraulic transfer line is leaking power steering fluid. I think it’s letting air in the system too. Anyone know the sizes for the hydraulic transfer lines? There’s two of them and I need the sizes for all 4 ends so I can just replace all of them with braided hose.

    Suspension V8 power steering rack on 4 cylinder LX

    My power steering rack is puking fluid from the boots. I'm planning on doing a V8 swap but need to be able to get around with the current 2.3 liter for a while. If I replace the current rack with a V8 model will that create other issues? I appreciate any guidance.

    So here's what happened. I bought a new (re manufactured) power steering pump for my 87 mustang, because there was a bit a clanking noise at idle and a rattling noise at high rpm.
