My 69 Mustang rides very low and the power steering hoses sag and only ride about 3 inches off the ground. After a short drive the hoses have become shredded and don't hold any fluid. I have the power steering hose mount and they are also the correct size hoses for a 1969 mustang. There is no room for the hoses to be positioned anywhere else but to just have them hand downwards. I have considered buying a conversion kit but they run about $1000 and I do not have that type of money right now. I am just looking for a quick fix that can get me back on the road.
thanks!

Figure out how long they need to be

Our local NAPA auto parts store can make just about any hose you desire!

I had several "Funky" oil lines made for my '46 Willys Jeep engine

You may have to use a fitting not exactly like yours

They put on just one end, on a little too long hose, we took it outside and figured out the length and which fitting would work best on the other end, before they completed the crimping

Have you looked into that option yet?
