I did the full replacement of both lines after my failure on the 93 (it apparently never went in for the recall, and it expired by the time I bought the car).

I'll take a look and maybe a pic or two tonight for you. Drove the 95 today.

my lower line on the trans is new, that was leaking and was fixed the day before i headed down to your neck of the woods, Bill. I am planning on doing this tonight afterwork in my garage, i talked to a few gearheads at work, and they figured double clamping was defintaly the next best thing if I could not get the factory precrimped line..

It is the next best thing. Ensure that the hose you have/use is rated for high pressure.

I recall when I got both replacement OEM lines 3 years ago, at least ONE of them had double-hose clamps. And both clamps came in the GM kit.

weird cause they had trans coolers on the Bonnes up untill 95 and if the part is not specific for a trans cooler then the same parts are used up untill 99

They are not the same part between a car with a trans cooler and a car without. Nor are they the same up to 99. There are a few variations.

Even a 92 with a cooler doesn't use the same part number as a 93, and my 93 and 95 (both with OEM coolers from the factory) used different part numbers.
