Default Power Steering + Valve Cover Gasket need work

I have an 02 WRX with 144k and recently brought it to the shop I always go to for my oil changes and long story short I have some "notes" on my invoice of things that need to be done. I need some help choosing the right parts because I don't want to pay all this labor costs and I'm sure I can find guides how to install all of the parts on youtube or elsewhere online.

"Power Steering hoses are leaking badly/Oil all over front of engine & exhaust"
Part: $300, Fluid: $5, Installation: $150

"Oil Filter housing O-ring leaking oil"
$100 Installed

"Valve cover gaskets are leaking oil"
Gasket Set: $130, Installation: $237.50

The shop told me that the Power Steering hoses were special order from the dealer and I can't find them on RockAuto. Idk why the left/right valve gaskets are like $20 each and they are telling me $130 for the set. The shop is usually pretty honest with me. Can anyone direct me to the right parts so even if I decide to have the shop do it I can escape these part prices. $300 for the power steering hoses just doesn't seem right. Thanks everyone.

Check the price at your local Subaru dealership and go from there. Power steering u can do by yourself and save $$$ for sure. If its leaking where it connects to the hard line, u could just get a new clamp

You could do all that stuff in a day. Doing an oil change at the same time will make things a bit easier.
