[200q20v] power steering hose (rebuilding) question

I had that hose rebuilt too.  The guy that rebuilt it
made a point to:

1) make the hose too short (something about the inner
tubing made him misjudge)

2) put the ends on at a wrong angle, forcing me to
twist the hose to screw it down on the pump....
caveat: Don't twist the hose when installing the new
one.  It will burst, btdt.

In the quest to replace this hose inexpensively I
ended up doing it 2.5 times in 3 days and wasting more
of my valuable time than I saved on the price of an
oem hose and lots of pentosin.  

I have vowed to go oem next time around. 
Incidentally, I do notice a slight groan at parking
lot speeds but only if the radio is off.
