MII challenges

Changed springs and rack and pinion. Now the a-arms slope upwards and the rack and pinion uses an o-ring seal on the rack end but I still have a double flare at the power steering pump. Any ideas about which pump has the o-ring seal? And if I put rubber spacers at thje bottom of the spring will it get rid of my 1" diffenence out of level on the a-arms? Looking at the Fatman rubber bushings that fit in the bottom of the springs. I guess I could just order new springs but the poweer steering pump has me confused. Would like to just change the flange in the back of the pump. Any one know of any interchanges?

A lot of the power steering hose kits have the adapters that screw into the rack so that you can use the ones for the flared ends. They are a double male with a o ring fitting on one end and a flare on the other. I messed one up and was able to get a replacement at a parts store that makes up hoses.
