While investigating my subframe dents, I fount this hose leaking right beside where the damage occurred.

Is this a power steering hose? If so, do I need any special tools to replace it? Do I need to replace the hardline and the rubber hose?

Thanks!

looks typical. That is the power steering line.

It's a one piece unit including the rubber and hardline. Call Luke at Lindsay for the part.

I have heard it's a bit of a PITA to replace because of the bends in the hoses and ends not wanting to quite line up.
