Jeep Grand Cherokee Leaky Power Steering

Heard the Jeep give off a louder groan than normal when turning into the driveway.

Looked under and saw p-steering fluid dripping underneath. Found fluid very low in reservoir.

Filled and tested power steering but when I looked under I saw that it is leaking at a somewhat quick drip.

I can't tell where its coming from by looking under, but its soaking pretty good.

If I was to educatedly guess, it's coming from really close to the front drivers side.

I suspect doom, but with you're help, I'm hoping I'm thinking wrong.

What do you all think it might be.

Thanks in advance.

Need to degrease the area and find the leak source. No guessing here, it could be many different things from cheap to not-so-cheap.
I hosed it off and it seems to be coming from a U-Shaped power steering line with metal crimps/clamps on them. The outer edge of the crimps have fluid all around them and under that u-shaped hose it drips to the floor.
That would be the cheap, relatively easy fix.
Got both power steering lines replaced and that seems to have fixed it. :clap:

Thanks everyone for all the help!! :D
