Not that bad of a job.
Make sure you use tubing or flare nut wrenches.
If you don't you more than likely round off the nuts.
After you are done turn the steering wheel back and forth to get any air out.
Figure a couple of hours.

16mm on the pump side, 18mm on the rack side. Sometimes its just easier to cut the line right by the nut and use a standard socket to get it off. If its been leaking for a while, its going to be a messy job.

Only replace the high pressure line unless you know for a fact that the return line is leaking (very rare).

Girlfriend's '02 LeSabre has a P/S hose leak. I'm assuming it's the high pressure hose. I have to refill the reservoir once every two weeks so it's not hemmoraging yet. Was wondering if I should do both hoses while I'm there and messy.
Also, is it best done from the top or from the bottom?
