Default 00 SE Power Steering Gone

I think i may have found the problem, but now i need to know what the part is called. I lost power steering the other day and i found a leak in a metal hose that runs between the radiator and motor. it runs from right to left (or left to right) across the frame, and has a sudden rise, horizontal run, then falls again. fluid is leaking at a bend before the rise. the hose runs along the passenger side frame, to the front frame, and then goes into a rubber hose before making a turn to the rear of the car on the driver side. confused yet?

is this a return hose for the power steering? any ideas on part numbers. i did a quick search but i'm not sure. it seems the parts i'm finding look smaller than what is currently there. thanks for any help.

High pressure = Edelmann Part #92055 and the return line =Edelmann Part #92263.
Rock auto is $15 and $34 for both line, Advanced Auto is about the same for price.
The original line for the return will run along the right frame the go across the front between the engine and rad, go to a loop and then go back the same way it came. There is a GM service bulletin out where the replacement line will come along the right frame, go to the loop then continue on the left frame and back to the steering rack.

Thanks Dog. I figured it was the return line, but it was probably replaced some time ago before we bought it because the return line continues along the left side. I had seen some older posts but just wanted to be sure.

Do I have to buy both lines if its only the return line? Or is it recommended to replace both if replacing one or the other?
