Default replacing power steering line

Just wondering how much of a pain in the *** it is to replace the pressure line on a power steering unit in a 1995 f150 5.0? Do I need special tools?

Go to your favorite parts store and pick up hoses. Ask them to help you select the line wrenches you need for the job. Get a couple bottles of power steering fluid and a pan to catch the spill. Jack up your truck and support it safely. Remove your air tubes to better see and work on the job. Remove the hoses and replace them filling up the pump after finished. run it and turn vehicle tires left and right refil and warm up oil. Do not over fill and do not run pump dry of fluit, it will burn up very quickly if left dry or full of bubbles. Happy new year.
