I've used flare tube nuts with great success when using steel line. I don't think you'll have any problems!

as long as you make good flares, you'll be fine. have you checked on just buying the whole line? if your not familiar with flaring, i'd practice on some scrap line before you do it on your power steering line. the first time i did it i had to do some practice flares before i got it down.
