    WTB: Upper&Lower Samco hoses (red or blue)

    hey guys!

    i was changing over my radiator and forgot about replacing the radiator hoses at the same time...so now im looking for nicer hoses other than the ugly black stock ones, lol.

    Cheers

    I believe the Magna ones are the same. Take yours into repco or similar and compare them.

    Found quite a few on US eBay, prices range from US$45 to $100+ without shipping.

    A group buy could cut the shipping cost

    Generally ebay is a scam. They charge $40 postage for an item then discount the shipping on the 2nd item by $5 or simething stupid so you still end up paying heaps for shipping. This has been my experience anyway.

    make sure your hoses have the spring inside else the recovery system will not work...I had that problem with my samco's and threw them out for some stainless flex hoses.

    wat springs? the stock ones didnt hav any and i havent heard about these springs before =/

    i checked repco this morning and they could get the generic ones ordered in for me. so i was thinking if i have to wait then i might as well order them online, lol
