04 Power steering pump leaking

I know its just the line but I see there's a couple different options. How do I find out if I have a conventional pump or hydroboost pump. If it helps my build date is 06/04.

Hydroboost is a hydraulic brake unit on the firewall. Look on the driver side of there is a big round drum looking thing then it's normal/conventional steering!

I'll check that out when I get back from work Saturday! I appreciate it I was going to order a pressure line ahead of time but I wasn't 100% sure what line I needed. Thanks!

Have you tried just putting a hose clamp on it?

I haven't got under there to see exactly where its leaking at yet. I just noticed a puddle the other day in the driveway and then last night I refilled the Reservoir and it was coming out as fast as I was putting it in.

Often a great, cheap, easy and better than factory solution .

Mine started leaking the same week as a friend of mine's did. I put a clamp on mine and he put a new R&B on his. His still leaked.

Worth a shot. Just wasn't sure if that would work for pressure side

It won't for the pressure side of that's the leak side. The return lines leak all the time and a clamp is usually the fix for them. I'd its pressure you will need a line or rack whichever is leaking.
