power steering fluid reservoir

The lower horizontal hose is the supply hose to the pump and often  
leaks at the clamped joint to the reservoir nipple. The hose into the  
bottom of the reservoir is the return hose from the rack. Both have  
only the reservoir fluid level pressure in them, 6” of fluid. If you  
have any slack, cut the hoses shorter and reinstall on the reservoir.  
With good hoses these run without clamps on my car. The pitch of the  
car should be irrelevant.
