Power Steering Hoses Leaking Issue?

So for my second post on this forum I bring an issue, I'm already starting off needy, sorry guys... As I mentioned in my intro post, I've replaced the entire steering system on my 04 Ram, with the exception of the cooler (that was the only good part). At this time I still have a slight leak at the fittings into the rack (which was replaced). I'm not sure if the issue is hose fittings or something I'm doing wrong. I've replaced several steering hoses on Dakotas but this Ram seems to be a tad more involved. Any advice as to how to solve this is greatly appreciated.

Typically the factory crimp leaks, often the fix is to simply put a hose clamp on the hose and tighten it up.

THanks for the input guys, I've since fixed the issues by replacing the hoses with new ones and better O-rings..... Now she is leak free. Time to focus on gathering information for the Turbo transformation
