If you appear to have a P/S gearbox leaking on a newer unit, you may want to investigate further other than immediately thinking the sector shaft seal is bad.
We have found that the gears are assembled with a petrolium grease or lubricant that when it becomes warm seeps from in under the rubber boot/protector and looks like P/S fluid leaking.
