Unhappy Power Steering Rack leak repairs?

I recently acquired a 2006 E350 which is in excellent condition. Unfortunately, within a few days of purchase, I saw a leak which turned from the power steering system. I took it to the garage. Some say that the PS rack has to be replaced . Others say that they will change the seals and gaskets and that should work. The mechanic is too confident. Is it possible to repair the PS rack? Will that be safe? The cost difference is just too huge.

Please help me ASAP.
