    Are the JSTSVP power steering hoses any good?

    they are. that and the oil cooler lines are on my truck. both high quality.

    The power steering line adapter started leaking a few months ago and a quick oring change and it quit. oring was less than a dollar.

    Thank you for the response. Do I need to order the steering rack bushings as well? Not sure what those are for.

    I did not have luck with them.
    They leaked badly at the fitting and changed the feel of the steering.
    They failed a quick left to right steering "jerk" test as the capacity of the hoses is less than oem.
    I took the oem hoses to an industrial shop instead.
    Some guys like the kit.
    I did not.

    I didn't do the install of them on this truck, they came on it when I bought them used. I only did the O-ring repair. so not sure about the rack bushings.

    So did it feel like the steering wheel was fighting you? One other question, what does, and where do the steering bushings go that JTSVP offers?

    The bushings are where the rack mounts to the truck.
    Rubber bushings deteriorate over time and result in slop in steering

    No, not exactly. The steering felt like it was lighter (more assisted by hydraulics) with the kit.
    What I didn't like was it would bind on a fast left to right or right to left jerk on the wheel.
