Steering box leak

I noticed that my steering box is leaking. It looks like it is leaking from the end where the steering shaft goes in. Is this just a seal or something more involved?

Same here mine has a leak, I'm hoping its just a seal cause I really hate changing steering units.

I am finally on board with obama's hope and change thing. I now HOPE that when its all over I have at least a little CHANGE left.

Im on my 2nd box and this one is leaking as well. Its easier to change the whole unit rather then break it down to repair the seals, IMO.
