"better" rubber or silicone vacuum hoses

Earlier this year I replaced all my vacuum lines with the kit from Mercedes source. a lot of them were really bad. Now it's only been a few months and they are already cracking and starting to deteriorate.

is there a source for silicone vacuum hoses the correct sizes?

McMaster Carr carries silicone hose in various sizes:

McMaster-Carr

No elbows, bends easily though.

First Email ************** and see if they will redress the issue.

Plenty of Silicon Vac Hoes on eBay and some regular Auto part Stores sell it. Speed Shops may sell it.

Disconnect one of the Rubber Connectors and measure the size of your Plastic Vacuum Tube and see what the OD is and get smaller Hose.
