if you replacing only lines for power steering you dont have to take out the belt but on other side of linens are very hard to disconnect from the rack and pinion...
you have to lift and secure the front disconnect the lines from pump and fallow he lines and keep disconect the holders from the body when you rich the end you are right under the driver seat you will see the very little open space and you see the bolt that connects linen to rack and pinion you will need long wrench take it out..just take your time ..when placing the new line just make sure it seats good on place and you gonna need the bleed power steering system after changing the lines...
so finally this job is really hard to do if you don't have experience i recommended to you just bring somebody know what he's doing for save time and not to do some job double time.Power steering system is closed system air or heavy leaks can damage your expensive power steering pump and rack and pinion.

SOURCE: How tough is it to replace the rack & pinion

jack it up put it on jack stands / shake it make sure it's safe . remove tie rod end nuts and split them apart by using a splitter , do both sides .helps if the tires are removed, then unbolt the hoses from either the pump or rack then there's only a couple of bolts and it's out /ready to reverse and put in a new 1. then you may need to bleed the steering system again by turning wheel back and forth to work out air . good luck.

Trying to change the power steering pressure hose but cannot see which of the 3 lines to the gears is the pressure hose.


The pressue hose is the one with a nut at the p/s pump end and a nut at the steering gear, the return hose usually has a spring clamp at the p/s pump.

Power steering not working tried adding power steering fluid didn't work.


The Pontiac power steering pump run off a shaft driven and not belt driven. This means that when the steering system is stressed instead of the belt slipping it puts a lot of stress on that shaft and could cause that to break. If nothing seems to effect the power steering I would have to guess that this is what happened and the power steering pump will have to be replaced.

Power steering leak


It's a bit difficult to remove the high pressure line. There isn't much room to get to where the line attaches to the rack and pinion. Just not much room to work on the newer cars.

Suspension and steerin wheel


It is difficult to just assess wut is causing the suspension knock. U will have to go under the vehicle or let someone who is experience about this do it. Go under the vehicle and check the entire suspension system, steering ends, rack ends, ball joionts, rubber bushings etc. Well u said u have changed ur shocks but no difference. As for the squeaks, this might be coiming from the universal joint from the steering column. Like I said they really have to be inspected.
