If it looks like this photo from rockauto. Com, that's the high pressure hose. It's not expensive compared to some hoses. Notice the two heavy duty crimps at each end of the rubber hose. If the hose you're looking at has spring metal bands for clamps on the ends of the rubber hose, that's the return hose. You can buy that in bulk from any auto parts store.
When you screw the new fitting into your rack and pinion assembly, be sure to run it in at least a few turns by hand so you know it's not cross threaded. The housing is made of aluminum and the threads can be destroyed very easily. It's recommended to use a flare nut wrench to prevent rounding off the soft brass nut.
