Possible Leaking Power Steering Input Shaft Seal

I noticed I have a small leak from my power steering, it may be the steering gear input shaft seal but I am not sure. It is too cold outside to tear down and look. If it is the input shaft seal can that be replaced in the truck? I have replaced them in my Chevelle but the Ex has a lot more stuff under the hood to work around.

The 211-02 is from the 2006 year and should be what you need.

One hint. Put the pitman arm back on and torque the nut down off
the vehicle. There is no room once it back in place to work.

Good tip! It has been cold here and I was working on the truck last week. I will probably clean it off, top off the fluid and keep an eye on it. When I checked the fluid yesterday it was on the bottom mark of FULL COLD.
