    fluid is not supposed to be in the boots. replacing the rack is in order. you might can get a seal kit.

    Yeah.... I've got the same problem... best bet is to replace the rack... or you can get a seal kit like MRR said... but the best bet is just to replace it... about 120ish for the part... but I don't know how much labor is... (I do all my work myself).... plus you'll have to get an alignment...
