steer box leak

94 ranger 2wd I have an intermittant leak on my steering box. It will leak power steering fluid either a few drops or as much as a couple tablespoons
at a time while parked in my driveway which is a slight incline front end lower than rear of truck. strange thing is it does not seem to leak when I park it at work which is slight upward angle. I can't see how that would affect the leak but it does and the best I can tell the leak originates from pitman arm shaft coming out of steerbox. could this be as simple as a seal or is this the warning of a bad steerbox? Thanks for your input

Are you sure one of the lines are'nt leaking? I "just" replaced both of my lines because it was leaking how you are describing. I would park and sometimes a little OR a lot would leak.

I saw that my return line was leaking so I replaced that and THEN..................believe it or not the damn high pressure line was leaking so I had to replace that as well. This all happened in the last couple of days. Good luck!
