Power steering rack leak

Had my car up in the air the other day. Checked and found power steering rack leak on left side of car. The lines are dry so it is coming from the rack itself. No fluid level drop so I'm sure it is just seeping for now. Keeping an eye on it and may be in for a rack sooner than I would like. Has anyone else had this before? Planning on lowering the subframe and removing it that way. Hopefully don't have to completely remove subframe!

Did you ever use anything other than Honda fluid. As i understand it...the interweb says that if you do use non Honda power steering fluid, the rack itself will explode almost as soon as the non honda fluid hits the internals...honda fluid...it's that special.

Nope. Replaced the pump a couple years ago and bought Honda fluid from the dealer

I have never used Honda branded PS fluid, never had a problem (use comparable).
