Default Replacing steering pressure hose

I have the 2008 Astra XR with electro-hydraulic steering. When I bought the car in March, the steering was very hard when turning the wheel more than 3/4 turn in either direction and you could hear the pump whining. This was resolved by topping up the steering fluid, but unfortunately the problem came back at the start of July. I had a shop look at it, and they found that the pressure hose between the pump and steering rack is leaking fluid, which is most severe when the wheel is turned to its maximum.

If I go to rock auto for this part, it looks like they only have the pressure hose for the model without electronic power steering, and same story for other sites.

Does anyone know if those parts shown would work for me, and could I use the Sunsong part (no. 3402869) without any trouble instead of the AC Delco part (No. 36352284) which is 3.5x the price?
