2008 Dodge Ram 5.7L Hemi
Had to replace the power steering cooler due to a leak. It was located in front of the radiator on the passenger side. I have pics. But had to attach them, can't upload links yet.

I double checked that it looked correct. Mine was leaking at the bend on the passenger side. I placed the new one in front of the old. Check the pictures.

I only had to remove two bolts and two hose clamps. I could not get a wrench on them from the top side and had to go underneath. Ill post pics of before and after I removed the plastic dust shroud. It made all the difference. Here is the before, note all the shiny fluid on the plastic. Check the pictures

The two rusty looking areas in the picture from below are the mounting brackets. 10MM bolts with nuts. The replacement part came with new bolts that were 3/8". The hoses were just held on by clamps. I learned one thing, be careful of the cooler and radiator fins. They are sharp and very easy to bend with unintentional contact.

By the way, this is my first post after lurking around for over a year. I hope to get some feedback so I can start to post pics in a better way.
