Hard lines on steering rack question

Hey guys. So one of the hard lines on my steering rack is leaking. It's a hard line that is on the rack itself connecting the driver side connection to the valve body where the steering shaft connects to it. It's a AC Delco reman and it looks like in it's past life part of the hard line rubbed at a spot causing the metal to thin and now leak.

Short of going to a junk yard and getting a new hard line, is there another route to take? I was reading you can use steel braided hose. Any thoughts?

EDIT: Here is the hardline I'm speaking of:

I don't think I'd use braided hose for that. However splicing in hard line or just replacing it with hard line wouldn't be tough. You can use brake line of the same diameter and a suitable high pressure type fitting (i.e. JIC, NOT compression)
