gm power steering/ earls lines

is it possible to use earls fittings(or aeroquip) and braided line in place of factory power steering lines on a gm power steering setup?Does someone sell a set of lines pre-made (braided)for this application?

I dont think the an type lines will work because ps is pretty high pressure. I'm pretty sure you need a high pressure premade line that I'm sure someplace sells. If not try finding a shop in your area that deals with hydraulics, and they may be able to make what you need

Aeroquip does make lines that can withstand the 2000 psi pump pressure. The old style lines were double flare and the newer style are metric O-ringed. Any hydraulic shop can make them for you or contact a braided line company.

Aeroquip

DO NOT USE EARLS They just can not take the pressure. Aeroquip makes a variety of lines with angled or straight fittings. Most of the parts stores carry them. Kragen, NAPA, etc.
