steering rack oil leak?

Hey guys, so I was wondering if any of you had a problem with an oil leak coming from the steering rack or its related components? I noticed the other day that there was oil all over the underside of my truck, but it seems to be starting from pretty far up towards the front end, which led me to believe it's got something to do with the power steering. anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

I replaced mine with an autozone reman unit. It was leaking since I bought the truck. There are quite a few seals on the unit and they go bad after time. I would try cleaning it up and tightening anything that looks loose and go from there. If it’s still leaking, you can buy a rebuild kit or just a new one for about $160 or so

Check the power steering pressure sensor

It's common for the hoses to leak. A simple hose clamp is often enough to fix it.

Clarify what you mean by leak. power steering fluid is low and the pump is whining or you're just noticing some oil on the ground or underneath the truck.
