If no puddles are found under the car, wet spots may be visible. If its a small unseen leak, check inside the inner tir rod bellows. Those are the rubber boots on the tie rod shaft.

Fill the system with fluid cut the wheel all the way to one side to rase the line pressure. Then start looking for a leak. Don't hold the wheel cut to long just 5 second @ a time.
