    I go to the local Auto Parts store (private owned) get weatherhead steel braided and rubber. Sometimes cheaper is not better.

    While I will agree on some items...Things like hoses not so much...Boss, Fisher Douglas Dynamics, etc. doesnt make hoses...

    Goodyear makes hoses....Well technically its all ContiTech now...

    And as others have said you get what you pay for, certainly the OEM hose is going to be marked up...So getting one from the source much better, I believe...
