Power steering leaking

I finely found my leak. Its the banjo bolt on the power steering box.It has aluminum washers to seal the unit.I tried to fix with copper washers but it still leaks(couldnt find any aluminum ones) If I get the right washers put on will this stop the leak? or is there another problem that I should be looking at?

Most common problem is in rubber house's. U need to remove 1 cm from house end and re-tighten them. Wash off leaked oil and see, if that helped.
