Oh no...

This brings me nightmares. mine did the same exact thing. Long story short, took it to a car-x to have them replace the hose, they said they only had the high pressure in, but the low one was backordered because its an incredibly common issue. So after many attempts of fixing this, I think it might be solid this time. The one line got replaced with the oem line, the low pressure one we settled on cutting the section out, and replaced it with a power steering rubber hose, a strong one. This issue literally gave me nightmares, and I had it twice break on me and pissed fluid out EVERYWHERE to the point where I lost power steering. Honestly, try your luck and see if you can get an actual metal oe replacement lines. I think the total I spent was around $470? its seriously a nightmare. But do it right the first time, and try to find the actual replacement lines.

To remove that rubber bs, theres 1 bolt on the side of the strut mount, take it off and it'll come off

I bought aftermarket lines for mine and replaced myself. this job is a total PIA. Also you may want to get new mounting clamps that go over both lines where they also mount to the frame below the battery. the factory clamps that bolt to the frame also have a fold over tab that holds the folded bracket together. the tabs broke on mine due to rust. If you are planning to do this yourself i concur to replace both lines while there. Good luck.
