Power steering leakage

so the other day i was doing an oil/spark plug change and i noticed when i turned the car on that the pressure hose that holds the power steering fluid is leaking due to tiny cracks all through the hose.
i took it to my mechanic and he told me mazda will charge a fortune for the part alone + labour on top.

so anyway i was wondering if anyone holds this part and could potentially sell it to me for a cheaper price. if not is there a way to get it made up with enzed or any kind of cheaper alternative.
thanks

car is a mazda astina 323 hardtop 95' model
