Shokan Power Steering Hose Update

OK, if their hose is the same, then getting the replacement from the dealer
would make no difference.  The other PN# you gave earlier does not register
(443 422 893N).  Might be the same manufacturer, but undoubtedly not the
same hose.  If you do decide to return, make sure they will do so after
you've installed and "used" the hose.

Good luck.
