I have a 03 Tahoe with 75K on it and when I turn right (parking lot type speed only), its harder to turn than with no power steering and it makes a serious whine sound. Fluid is fine, clear and full. Turning left is smooth as a baby's bottom.

I've been told its the steering gear that needs replacing. However, when I look under the truck's front end and I see red colored fluid sparingly on the steering lines (even though the fluid is full). Its not tranny fluid, or engine oil, and it only exists on teh steering lines and surrounding areas. And the fluid doesn't appear to be leaking from the steering pump either.

My question is this: If the problem is with the steering gear, would it cause the steering fluid to leak from somewhere other than the gear itself?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
