SOURCE: Leakage of Power Steering
It's not the wheel bearing! If your sure it's not brake fluid, but power steering fluid you have a leaking power steering hose. Take a rag and wipe down both hoses, fill the reservoir and with engine running have someone turn the steering wheel all the to the right and then left while you watch for leaks. The hose that comes out of the bottom of the pump is the high pressure hose, and the hose that goes into the reservoir is the low pressure hose. You can buy replacement power steering hoses at a auto parts store or a Ford dealer. I would replace both given the age of your van but you can replace just the leaky one. Use a flare nut wrench or open end wrench and remove the hose(s) from the steering box first and have a container to catch the fluid that wil drain out of the reservoir and hoses. Refill the reservoir and turn the steering wheel back and forth to remove air bubbles (engine running). Check fluid level and check for leaks at the fittings.

Pricing vary, depending on where you live and if you want it done at a dealership or at a local shop.It would be about 1hour of labor +price of the hose+power steering fluid. Dealer charges about $70.00 an hour.
You can call the dealer ask how much to change the hose. Also a local shop can gave you an estimate.

Generally it should work it's way out by itself, but you can remove air by turning the wheels all the way in one direction (hold it there a few seconds) then repeat in other direction...check fluid level and that's all. If noise lasts more than a few hours, then pump has sustained some damage.
