Looks to be steel tubing, so lines may have hole rubbed in it.Just have to get in there and see if you can see where leak is coming from.

What about seal in steering assembly?

Can be, but that leak should be under the column.

With the steering gear, there are plenty of places for a leak, it's just so congested, it is hard to get a look. Just have to remove covers and get in there and look for source. Sorry, no good way to find a leak!
