Default Transmission cooling hoses

I'm looking to replace the two hoses that go into the bottom of the radiator as a pre-emptive measure. One them was weeping. I believe these are the trans cooling hoses. What are the part numbers for these? Can I just pick up some hoses at my local autozone? I'm assuming that these aren't high pressure hoses.

you can use good quality fuel line - do not use coolant hose - and you had better do this job the long, slow, meticulous way, if one of those hoses comes loose, you have likely burned up the transmission! - also, I would use the real Toyota clamps

Noted, particularly on the clamps. It was a non toyota clamp that was loose that was causing some slight leaking. Thanks LS!
