power steering rack

picked up my car at the airport long term lot today and as I drove off the steering screeched as I turned the wheel!!!??? lost all the fluid in my absence...leaking from the rack boot on the passenger's side my question is replace the rack? as to reseal it the rack has to come off anyway? and the labor is as much as the new rebuilt rack is? the rack is about 1 year old?
any body seen a similar problem?
thanks!

I would suggest installing a rebuilt rack.

Recommend ZF rebuilt racks only - the other rebuilds I have seen do not last long.

many places do reconditioning - send yours off to them and they'll recondition it for you and send it back. Only takes a week or so usually.
