Power Steering Groan

I replaced my hose with a non-OEM part, and lived with the groaning
for four months. Finally, I replaced it with a new OEM hose, and the
groaning went away like magic.

I know, besides the cost, it was a couple of hours of sheer frustration
to get the banjo bolt on the steering gear side on given the total
inaccessibility of its location.
