Mine is leaking too. Slowly but surely. I just keep the power steering system topped off with Mercon V and deal with the oily spot on my driveway. I'll fix it one of these days, but it's cold out right now. I don't drive my truck everyday, so it doesn't leak very fast. It's definitely worse after pulling a trailer though.
Once it warms up a bit outside I'm planning on pulling mine off to see if it's repairable. I'll fix it if it is and buy a new one if it isn't. I'm expecting it to take a week or two by the time I get all the parts figured out, so I'll have to do it during a period that I won't need my truck. I'm under the impression that the actual swapping out of the booster can be done in under an hour though.
If you buy it new it's roughly a $300-$400 part , depending on where you get it, so it's not a real cheap repair. I'm not sure I'd trust a rebuilt one though.
