    03 Chevy impala power steering return line bad

    My return line is bad at the fitting at the rack and pinion. Looks like a bear to change as it routes from the drivers side to the passenger side up to the front of engine cradle over and back to the pump. Since it's the return would you get a fitting and splice it in. Anyone ever do the return line
