E39 rack and pinion DIY rebuild

So I have an 02 530i,I do all the repairs and maintenance myself Iíve done from Oil changes and DISA replacements to SULEV valve cover upgrade and vanos O-rings and anti-raddle Kit. Iíve replaced the ccv, then ccv delete and catch can. Unfortunately Iíve also had to learn some body work and painting. Most damage to the left fender and inner fender but I did the whole front end. the point is something breakers/ goes wrong, I fix it. So first, noticing my steering wheel getting stiffer to turn I went with a power steering flush. After notdrivingbit for some time I notice it was becoming stiffer again. I noticed fluid comming from the rack and pinion at Both ends. Iíve see. A few DIYs in removing the rack. It doable I can manage with that. Now my question. Is can I possibly purchase a seal kit for the rack and pretty much rebuild it Iíve heard that the seals are pretty much the only thing you can replace about the rack. Well Iím hoping ant one can give me some feed back maybe a few tips and tricks. It would be highly appreciated! Thanks
