2000 chevy impala: the high pressure power steering line

This answer was rated:

where is the high pressure power steering line on a 2000 chevy impala with a 3.4? And what is the name of the power steering line thats on the right side by the wheel?

the return hose is the one that runs on the right side by the wheel.

the high psi line is the one that attaches to the pump with a fitting you remove the fitting with a 16mm wrench

the return line attaches to the pump with a hose clamp
