Thanks for the reply. The clamped hoses are what I was expecting to see leaking also. They were dry. The resevior and pump also are dry. Only place appears to be the High pressure side with the Banjo fitting. It's leaking down on the steering box and what's worse is the leak drips or seaps on the rubber of the tie rod end and control arm bushing.

A question I have for you is, can I drop the steering box without disconnecting steering linkage other than at the end of the arm from the box? After looking further, it appears that is the only way to get to the fitting properly. It is extremley tight in there especially with the heat shields on the knuckle and tie rod end covers.

The leak definetly appears to be coming from the crush washers, as the hose and banjo fitting crimp are dry also.

Thanks again for the input.
