    hey guys im back!... i just got layed off so i finally have time to get back into the forums... well anyhow ive got a issue with my steering.... well anyways i have a major leak! i mean i literaly have to fill my resevoir once or twice a day.... in other words i use about a quart of fluid a day.... it just drip, drip, drip, drips...lol it leaks on both sides of the truck and its comming from a black boot like thing on each side... it was a slow leek, i was filling it about twice a week, but i had an emergency one day and had to leave in a hurry and i didnt have and ps fluid so i dumped brake fluid in it... obviously i shouldnt have done that but desperate times call for desperate measures... but anyhow after that it the ps fluid just runs right through it... so does anybody have any idea what it is that i need to replace?

    Desperate is an understatement. While it's getting fixed, I hope it's flushed and cleaned as well.
