Default Power Steering Fluid Leaking On Rack

My 1992 lexus is having major problems. Have been dealing with exhaust problems. Now there is a leak (bad) of power steering fluid dripping on my steering rack, the rubber cushion on the rack is covered with fluid. Does this indicate I need a new steering rack as one mechanic indicated or could it be something from the power steering pump which was replaced at 74,000; the car now has 135,00 on it.

I think the problem is in the power steering pump you'll have to change it now

Not all the time. check your hoses at the bottom of the pump. you have 2 small that sit side by side and one above those. let me know how you come out.
