    PSC -8 AN Steering Pressure Hose

    12-17 Jeep JK OEM steering high pressure hoses have found to be to restrictive and have a teflon insert. Stock pumps or upgraded pumps overheat when you install larger tires and ask the small piston gear box to turn them. The heat melts the teflon insert and sends it directly into the valve of the gearbox.We have found that this restriction also can have some overall system speed issues when adding cylinder assist. PSC now has a true 1/2" ID pressure hose kit with no teflon insert that converts your pump and gear box to -8 AN for super easy install. Combine this with the -8 AN return line kit for maximum increase in flow and turning speed.

    That's a huge size difference between the two hoses mentioned. No doubt you're getting better performance out of the 1/2 inch -8 AN sized hoses. I look forward to the day I get my PSC kit!!

    I'm assuming that this will greatly help with steering on the stock box?

    It does two things 1.Flow is increased helping oil temp and overall turning speed. 2.Insurance your Teflon insert doesn't melt and plugs your gear box. I cannot confirm this yet, but im testing the factory ATF+4 fluid to see if this adds to problem.

    So even this is an upgrade to those who already have a full PSC kit?
