Hello,

Open the hood and see if you can tell were exactly it is leaking from. If it is leaking from the driver frame it is possibly a seal in the Steering Gear Box. Or maybe one of the hoses has a hole right there by the gear box. Check it out and post findings here.

I have looked under the truck and it comes directly from under the pump. I see no holes in the hoses but under where the steering rod from the steering wheel connects to I guees the gear box you can see where fluid has gummed up from sitting the from over time. I do drive the truck on a daily basis to work and back or whereever if that helps on the wear and tear detail. But I do do donuts or nothing in it like that fish tail here and there but nothing hardcore.
