steering gearbox leaking?

i just installed my dual steering stabilizers yesterday and was under the truck today making sure everything was cool. i noticed some fluid leaking from where the pitman arm attaches to the spline on the steering gearbox. it only leaks when the wheels are at full turn. when straight i dont see anything coming out. my steering seems fine right now but how do i fix it. new gearbox, news seals or what? god this front end is starting to cost a fortune

How do you like it? Feel tighter? Easy swap?

No issues. Pretty staight forward, but can get messy. Look to see if the pump has any leaks. they are cheap and you're that far into the project.
