Question leaky steering rack

Puddles appear on the garage floor. Steering makes noise. Are there seals to be replaced, or does the whole steering rack need to be replaced? Dealer quote $2,000 plus! Yikes. Anybody have this happen to their S80 with 58,000 miles? oh yes, its a 2000 model.

$800 later, fixed, feels good, but told my front end bushings are bad. Hmm sounds like a loose strut but they said bushings are simply worn out...only 60,000 miles, but 10 years old. I thought Volvos were built tough.
