Question about 1984 Subaru Brat
If you are up to it, you can remove the Rack and Pinion and have it rebuilt. Most of the time the rebuild kits can be purchased locally, but I recommend you have it rebuilt by a professional. I usually just buy new Rack and Pinions and get the old ones rebuilt.
If the fluid is leaking out the Rack and Pinion boot, you should only have to remove the Rack and Pinion, and disconnect the hoses going to the Rack and Pinion. A set of sockets and open end wrenches should get the job done, but you will need a ball-joint separator to disconnect the tie-rod ends, and the steering will need to be realigned when the job is done. After the hoses are reconnected and the wheels are put back on, top it off with some power steering fluid, turn on the vehicle, turn the wheel to the left and right, check and top off power steering fluid, and repeat until the level stays topped off.
