I agree with snowboard. Another name for the line wrench is "tubing wrench". It looks like a common boxed end wrench with six "points" or places of contact inside the boxed end but has a slot cut in it so it will slip over the metal tube part of the hose. Using this type of wrench you are less likely to "round off" the shoulders of the tubing nut. You won't be able to have the hose fixed. Well, you CAN, but it's much cheaper to buy a new one. I believe they're around $20.00 or so.
If the nut is recessed or some sort of wierd shape, try going to the dealership and talking to a mechanic. I've talked them into renting me a specialized tool. Some of the larger auto part supply stores also rent tools for a small fee. I think what you will need is the tubing wrench. Spend a few extra dollars and replace both hoses while you are getting greasy. That way you won't have to bother with it again for quite a while.

you Could find a new or rebuilt rack for two or three hundred bucks plus about two hours of labor. Then you will need to have a wheel alignment. So around $500-$600 total. Good Luck.
