Hydroboost Problem?

So, while I was installing my new headlights and looking for a place to run the wire through for my fog lights I noticed that the back of the hydroboost (I assume) where the rod that connects to the brake pedal goes in was moist. Appeared to be power steering fluid as suspected. No drips or any marks on the carpet where it had dripped, but I was wondering if this was normal (doesn't seem like it would be) or if this was an up and coming problem I should be budgeting for. If it is a up and coming problem I guess we could start the discussion on how hard it is to change and what a hydroboost unit would cost and the best place to get one. I used to be an ASE master certified mechanic prior to joining the military so I am pretty sure I can do the job, just looking for pointers, tricks, or pitfalls. Thanks for any advice.

Yeah, I was kind of thinking the same thing. It would suck to have it give out and fill up the floorboard with power steering fluid though.

Yeah, mine has been leaking for a while... the carpet has fluid in it, but I can't see it thru the floor mat... I've been putting it off for a year or more. Priced the unit from Advance Auto Parts, was $280-300 if I recall...
