Default Power Steering Pressure Line Replacement

So my power steering pressure line rusted through and sprung a leak. Any suggestions?? Do I have to go to a Mitsu dealer and order the whole line? Are there aftermarket lines for the 92 VR4? Anyone have a spare lying around?
Thanks for the help.

You can get one from Autozone too.

do you know the flexible part with a banjo bolt or the hardline that goes on top of the steering rack?

because the hard line will be only available at the dealer

....and the hardline is what rusts out. I did two cars for that problem last summer.

Whoops. The fact that it rusted through didn't seem to register to me. The flex line that goes from the hard line to the PS pump is available at Autozone and other aftermarket stores. The hard line is probably only available from Mitsubishi.

Dumb question - couldn't you just cut the rusted area out and replace with a rubber segment?

Thanks for the suggestions, questions and comments.
I did go to the Mitsu dealer and order the line. It is the one running from front to rear and is about 5 feet long and cost about $98.00. Being a high pressure line and with special ends for fitting, it was the only way to go.
Now for the installation.
