05 XLT 3.0 Duratec Hi Pressure Steering Hose Leaking at the rack

Recommended Posts

About 2 years ago, I changed out the hi pressure hose on my steering pump and a few days ago it failed, not the hose, but the o-ring that connects to the rack due to it being pinched during installation, surprised it lasted that long as bad as it was pinched.

I pulled the line off and replaced the o-ring and drove it for roughly 100 miles, and now it's failed again. after inspection, it didn't seem to be pinched this time, I'm wondering if this might be a common problem with this connection which I don't like.  Does anyone know of a modification for this set up?

Thanks in advance for comments / suggestions.
