Default cracked power steering hose

I got rear ended on the way to work this morning :/. The force caused the power steering line that connects to the reservoir to crack. Can I find tubing for that at an auto parts store and will it be okay to drive the car a few miles with little power steering fluid?

Yeah, it won't kill the pump right away. Hell, I had a leaking rack on a beater daily that I was tired of dumping money on fluid and drove without it for months because idgaf, fixed the rack, **** worked fine still. Any parts store should have ps hose. You needed the hoses replaced anyway. Lexus might have some in stock, or possibly could have em in a day or two. But either option should work

Your best bet is to remove the PS hose and have a shop rebuild it for you. I had the one for my 96 SC300 rebuilt at a local shop that does hydraulic hose for $48. They reused the metal lines and used all new hoses and crimp clamps.

Yup, drove to the parts store.. a new hose and quart of Dexron later it's good to go

It wasn't the high pressure hose.

Search google for hydraulic hose repair in your area and you should be able to find some places that can make you a new line.
