Power steering hoses

My power steering hoses are leaking and I cannot find any replacements. My Suzuki dealer is not very interested and the motor factors don't stock them.
What do other people do? I guess I could take them into an hydraulic specialist and have them copied?
The high pressure ones seem to be the most difficult. I think low pressure hose is available to repair that side of things.
Thanks for any advice,
Roger

The reason no-one is interested is that a local hydraulic specialist is an order of magnitude cheaper than Suzuki or most car parts suppliers

Even national chains such as Pirtek www.pirtek.co.uk/ are much cheaper

I've used Pirtek a few times with other cars and they are pretty cheap compared to genuine parts. Very good quality too.
They can also do aircon pipes if anyone needs them!

How about a good second hand one. James Priestley breaks Jimnys.
