Great comment. When I was a kid (in the 70'*) we'd see cars with broken hoses all the time. Not seen to often anymore. Are the new hoses so good they don't fail? I have a 1999 Bravada and a 2001 Bonny still running original hoses. Thinking I might replace them during a flush. Maybe they really don't need to be replaced? I am going away for 4 months and I am trying to get the Bravada perfect for my wife before leaving...... Doing ball joints this weekend.
