Steering leak

OK I got a power steering leak at th gearbox on a 2001 wrangler 2.5L. Where can I get a rebuilt one, a kit to rebuilt one, or a new one I need one fast and I need the least expensive there is, nobody around here locally can get a seal kit, but the bottom seal is gone so bad it leaks three drops a minute static.

Usually when the bottom seal starts leaking, it is due to bearing slop. You would need to do both or the new seal will start leaking like the old one in short order.

It ain't nothing for me to change a bearing in there, but I looked under it my leak is starting at the top where the knuckle goes into the box. I called NAPA they have one but its $160 (new) everybody here is about the same, but NAPA can get me a seal kit and a bearing for $50. So here soon I guess I'll have something new for the " what did you do for your Jeep today" thread LOL
I wiped the lines off also they don't leak at all so I'm good there. But the leak at eh top DOES explain why it only leaks under pressure not static.
