made-in-usa prod­uct and come with a full war­ranty. Since th­ese lines are made from all new pieces there are no longer core charges, no re-used fac­tory pieces and no need to re­turn your leaky stock lines. You can toss those stock lines in the garbage where they be­long.

There was a lot of time spent on the en­gi­neer­ing side of de­vel­op­ing th­ese re­place­ment line kits and a few dif­fer­ent styles of hose and tub­ing had to be tested be­fore the fi­nal style went into full pro­duc­tion. Most of the Driven Diesel fuel sys­tem prod­ucts use a highqual­ity stain­less-steel braid over Te­flon hose, but that style in this power steer­ing sys­tem cre­ated in-cab noise Schroeder and Brekken just weren’t happy with. The non-braided hose they’ve cho­sen of­fers ex­cel­lent per­for­mance and dura­bil­ity with­out in­creased noise from the steer­ing sys­tem. The truck used for this ar­ti­cle is a 2002 LB7 Du­ra­max with al­most 180,000 miles on the clock and the fac­tory power steer­ing lines al­ready re­placed at least once. The orig­i­nal power steer­ing pump was still on the truck and was get­ting tired, so this seemed the per­fect time to re­place it with a new AC Delco pump while the sys­tem was apart. The com­plete power steer­ing sys­tem was flushed be­fore the old pump and lines were re­moved to rid the sys­tem of all the used,

 The power steer­ing hose as­sem­blies are not only man­u­fac­tured from bet­ter ma­te­ri­als than the stock lines, but they were built to be eas­ier to in­stall and ser­vice in the un­likely event of a leak. Fac­tory hy­draulic hoses are per­ma­nently at­tached to the...

 The Driven Diesel power steer­ing hose kit was de­vel­oped to com­pletely re­place the prob­lem­atic OEM hoses that are prone to leak­ing on the 20012010 GM trucks. Cnc-bent stain­less steel lines, 4,000psi hy­draulic hose and AN fit­tings im­prove upon the...

 The hy­draulic hose pieces in­cluded in the kit are built from the high­est qual­ity made-in-usa hose rated to 4,000psi work­ing pres­sures with a flame-re­sis­tant outer jacket for added pro­tec­tion and safety.
