Okay guys, I changed my steering box last week because the pitman seal was TOAST (and btw it was a bitch with the ABS controller in the way, what a stupid design) .... anyway, in order to get one of the lines out, we had to heat the fitting at the steering box with a torch and move it back and forth back and forth etc until it came out. Presumably, during this procedure, the line developed a hairline crack, so now THAT is leaking.
The line I refer to is, I hope the return line, the one that hangs on the radiator support and doubles as the p/s cooler (I hope it's the return line, it goes from box to reservoir instead of the pump, right?) ... and presuming this is the return line, it's reasonably low pressure, and I should be able to run rubber line right? I priced it as only being $50 (not at the dealer, the dealer is horrible), but it's special order and I'd have to wait 2 days. Is it safe to use rubber line? I'm thinking it should be.
