Interesting, because I tried to find a new lower radiator hose for my 5.2
and none, I repeat, none, from any auto parts store (any!) were formed to
fit the way the original was and none included the internal wire (spring?)
of the original. I found that all aftermarket brands of lower radiator
hoses were identical! I finally gave up and bought one from my friendly
Dodge dealer. Fit perfectly AND came with the internal wire. Had it not,
I would have cleaned and reused the original wire/spring.
