When replacing those two couplers, be more concerned with getting the proper shape/contour than the ID of the hose ends. The outlet isn't too bad, it's in a fairly accessible area and is pretty much just a 90 degree bend.

The inlet piece, on the other hand, is in an extremely congested part of the lower engine RH engine compartment and shape is critical. It's a tight fit - A/C hoses, radiator outlet to water pump hose, turbocharger exhaust pipe, ATF cooler supply return lines, etc. They are all in the way.

You could buy factory replacements - big $$

or just go to the J/Y they are easy to pull and probably less than $20 combined.
