It seems as if power steering fluid is leaking from beneath where the master cylinder and the booster pump sandwich together. is there a seal or o ring that just needs to be replaced or is this a major repair with a lot of tools and parts.

Man...steering problems on a CHEVY Duramax truck???

I have less than 40k on my (bone stock) 05 2500. I have replaced the steering pump once, the intermediate shaft once...and the lower steering bushing TWICE. I hate the steering on these trucks.

Sorry I can't help with your question, but I had to post...my steering issues started coming back today and I can't wait to go through all of this again. If the dealer can't solve the problem, I don't know what to do next.

Im a Tech at the local Chevy dealer. The leak is almost gauranteed to be the hydro boost lines. they run from the p/s pump to the hydro booster. not to hard to change with the right tools as long as you take the fender liner out and remove the turbo pipe thats right there

Common problem, I have a few buddies that have had the same things happen to there H.D. steering. FYI Better keep watch on the tie rod ends too they will break with very little stress on them. Probably best to buy one know and put it under your seat or something. It might just be Carma enough to prevent them from breaking.

True on the tie rods as well. The biggest thing would be a set of crows foot line wrench sockets if you can find them. Tomorrow at work I will pull out all the tools I use and inventory them and then pass it on to you. Any other chevy questions feel free to ask. I will answer to best of my ability. Hope I can be of some help to all you Bow Tie owners

Two questions, can you take a pic of the leak and how many miles does your truck have?
