2010 power steering leak

Hey guys..
I have a 2010 super duty 5.4
I noticed the PS pump was whining and fluid was low. I filled the resivor and I have some fluid leaking on driveway.
But doesn't "seem" to be coming from pump or lines.

Is there only 3 areas on pump it could leak ?
Pressure line
Return line
And front seal
Is there any possible leaks behind pump?
Thanks in advance

The power steering cooling loop, if it has one. The steering box or if you have a hydroboost brake setup, it could be the booster but unlikely.

Thanks for the reply.. doesn't look like it has the hydro boost. I'm going to brake clean it good and inspect again.
Should I run ATF fluid in power steering pump? Thanks again.

I would, but, I'm always thumbing my nose at the engineers.
