Default power steering leak

i have a 94 dodge ram 1500, i came out of work one night and i had a huge puddle on the ground. it leaked when i first got the truck and i put the "stop leak" stuff in but no good. i put trans fluid in it because trans fluid is thicker than power steering fluid ( did this like last winter) it stopped leakin. but now its leaking again. it leaks right where the pitman arm shaft it. i jus need the seal that goes there. anyone knw how hard it is to get that seal out? i got the nut off the arm, i got to get a puller to get the arm off. any help?

thanks jay

I have never replace seals like that personally. I think they make rebuild kits that have everything you need. They make those kits for calipers also, but I always buy new sealed units.

Damn...not since 2009??
I just searched the forum for the same issue on my 2012 2500 slt, and this was the only post about it. My leak is very slight, but a leak no less.
I was quoted around $600 to replace the entire power steering pump...for a leaky seal....?
I guess this is an extremely rare issue, but damn, the rig only has 60k miles on it.
If anybody has any bit to add, I would appreciate some feed back
