steering rack leak poll - part 2

Part 1 of my poll was how long before a rebuilt rack started leaking.

Part 2 is about the cause of steering rack end seal leaks.

I want to add an option for "end seals stretching because tie rod ends too stiff". A good poll is a difficult thing to make.

Another poll option I should add is "excessive pressure on return line because aftermarket filter installed backwards", but since noone is replying, please delete these polls.
