2002 TB LT Power steering fluid leak

i have the 2002 TB LT. my power steering fluid is leaking from what looks like the axles but they aren't the axles, im assuming it is the steering rods (sorry im not positive of the names) it started off by leaking from the passenger side and now it is leaking from the drivers side as well. i had the rack and pinion replaced about 4 months ago and both front axles replaced about a month ago. i also had the power steering pump replaced back in November of 2009. I'm hoping everyone here can help me because my mechanic is over an hour away and i would rather try to fix it myself and save the trip to the shop. it looks like its leaking from the rubber boots on the rods. please help

I assume you are talking about the steering rack leaking, if that is the area and you had this replaced 4 months ago, your best bet is to take it back to the shop that replaced it and question what kind of replacement you got. These items rarely fail.
