Steering tie rod seal leaks, why??

I lost my power steering mall crawling, the fluid was pissing out from the steering rack end boots. My libby is an 09 but with only 23k miles. Had my lift done about 2k miles ago, the tie rod seems to be on a steeper angle than before the lift, could this be the cause of the rupture? I never heard anybody having this issue.. Any inputs will be apreciated. Thanks..

Yeah that can happen due to the lift.You will need a new R&P as there are no rebuild kits.
