fluid steering box??

Hello gents,

quick question, my steering pump was replaced recently and the 2 hoses....just because it was broken/toasted..anyway now i noticed serious leeking coming from that area... the hoses are clean so i inspect its not coming from the steering pump... took it to a mechanic, he said that the steering box.... the ones thats closest to the bumper.. rigiht? is that wahts it called? leeking is coming from there. he told me that a new box is worth around $500 so its better if he takes it to a shop, where they rebuild it and it will be around $200 for that.. does that sound resoanble? the mechanic is a friend ..so i trust him but just wanted to share this with you,

If it wasn't leaking before replacing the hoses, it sounds like the hoses weren't installed correctly.
