Default metal line on rack and pinion rusted and leaking

it looks like the line in the middle of the rack is rusted thru. i found a place that has stainles steel lines for 60$. regular metal lines are 40.$ my question is since there is alot of rust under, is it possible to replace lines on the car or does rack have to come out. car is from new york. shame it only has 88k miles. my concern is the nipple on the rack has rust as well and im hoping id does not sheer when i try to remove the line

If I remember right, a new rack is only about $100.

i got lucky and in boneyard was a pt with the engine gone. i ot to the lines no problem. the old lines came off after 1 week soaking with pb pblaster. i wire brushed it as well the lines close to the column had to be cut and a socket used. im proud to say the leak has been fixed, but other problems have popped up
