    Ok I thought it was my steering pump that has been leaking the steering fluid but I took a closer look at it tonight and it looks like the fluid might be coming from where the steering rod connects to the steering box? Any boidy have any ideas??? hoses look good also

    If the leak is coming from where the steering shaft enters the steering box, you more than likely need to replace the seal...that is what I have to do with mine.

    To be honest, I don't know yet, as I haven't done mine yet. But from what I was told in here is that its on the outside of the steering box and all you have to do is pry the old one off and press the new one in.
