I have no clue, but a leak in the steering isn't a good thing. Could be a hose, the pump or a seal on the rack itself. This can be an unsafe condition where you can lose enough fluid to find yourself unable to steer properly. Have it looked at and repaired by a competent mechanic and not a dude.

I will agree its very important to have this fixed by someone who knows what they are doing after 20 years wrenching on cars I've never seen a bracket leak lol.

well this dude is a mechanic but he was telling me it gona cost @ 1000.00 to get fixed, i am going to put the car on a rack and see where the leak is coming from.

Two things - your car is not a 2006. The last year was 2005. You do not have a leak in the bracket. You have a leak in the rack. It is the mechanism that turns the wheels. Call around to see if you can get another shop to replace it with a used rack. I don't know how much a new rack is. Find the price on www.RockAuto.com. It's not a easy DIY job and you will need an alignment. Let a shop do it.
