Steering rack

On the fuel line, I would try a NAPA, or a place that sells Gates fuel
line.  I used some cheap stuff, and I've had it crack, and on my sister's
car, the hose became soft enough to leak at the rail.  Once I replace both
hoses with the Gates brand stuff, it hasn't leaked since.  Once you feel the
thickness of the Gates vs the cheap stuff, you will know why it's $5 a foot.
