Default What do you guys think? Power steering fluid leak

I saw a few drips of oily stuff under my jeep so I checked it out. The smell confirms its power steering fluid, lol
But this leak appears to be from an odd location?
Is this a normal spot for it to leak?
Thanks guys

There is a seal on the steering box input shaft. Not too bad to get at. You'll need a spanner to fit the big nut (input bearing preload adjustment). You can buy a seal kit pretty cheap if you feel adventurous. This is one place I've had good luck with Lucas stuff, their PS stop leak actually does work on this sort of thing. The long term fix is to reseal or replace.

You can probably straighten out the flange on the pan and re-seal it, or just get another.
