Ummm! Think this through a bit. Power steering = hydraulics. Means you have a 'high' pressure side and a low pressure side. The 'cooler' would have to be on the low pressure side, where it would do nothing (other than impede flow back to the pump). The 'high' pressure side fittings need to be formed pipe (you found that) OR high pressure hydraulic hose WITH proper end fittings JOINED with a multi-ton 'band' gizmo. Recommend you don't purchase any hose or what not until you find a shop that has the machines to make small diameter hydraulic hoses as they prob won't guarantee the piece unless they use there own stuff. Low pressure side you can just use screw type band clamps.
Luck!
