I will be replacing my power sterring pressure line in the next day or so and I am assuming it is not going to be fun. Any tips to make it easier would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

An 18mm crow foot is helpful. This is like a line wrench, but with a 3/8" square hole to drive with a ratchet and extension. The other end of it is way up on top of the subframe by the rack and is kind of a pain in the ass to get to. IIRC, on the 4.6 models I have always came in from the bottom by the oil filter to get to this connection, but on a 3.8 I have came down by the power distribution box to unhook the line. It may work just as well on the 4.6 too. Just some ideas, hope this helps.

Not sure how much help this is. I did it on my 5.0 recently.

I would second the thread's sentiments from Rob.

I took out the oil filter for some clearance and had to change my leaky pump which helped for room.

Two open ended box wrenches with a pivot helped get at the intermediate fitting above the power steering rack.

Afterwards, found out that bandaids are your hands best friends ;)
