Rack and pinion leak???

Pulled the 85 TC in the driveway and the pass side of the rack and pinion is leaking from the boot (as far as I can tell). It left a nice puddle on the driveway. I put a bottle of Lucas stop leak in it and will wait to see if that stops it. Do they make seals that I can change, and if so, how hard is it to do. Thanks

A reman'ed unit for my '88 was pretty resonable from the Auto-parts store (I want to say about $100?? or less). Comes with both Not too hard to change out either... you may want to consider that route for better reliability.
'88 TC-Black T-5 with 79K stock 98.5% original, just w-i-d-e rims and tires, and some under hood powder-coating
'88 TC-Blue w/98K. Stocker w/t-5 ( the resurrection car) top gas mileage =31 mpg!
'88 TC-Grey w/99k. Auto, well optioned, 2nd owner car - getting more options
'87 TC-Blue w/123k t-5 parts car - less of a car now
'88 TC gray- body only so far- very very late factory build dated car, awaiting resurrection
'87 GN w/16.8K

+1, I agree with Paul. Easier and more reliable to get a reman and change it out. Plus get a lifetime warranty. Boy those Auto parts guys hate us long term owners!!!
