power steering leaks

I just got done installing new lines on my Mustang 2 rack and GM pump. I sprung a leak at the rack. The fittings have those o rings on them. Did I over tighten them? Is there anything better than those crappy o rings?

Well there's your problem. You freaking crushed the hell out of them. Once you feel tension just give it one good snug and you're good.
