I think it's more likely that you have some internal fluid loss in the steering box than fluid getting into the air suspension pump. If for no other reason than the fluid would have to go a lot further to get into the air suspension system.

Drain the air tank and see what you get. There will always be some engine oil mixed with water but if it's a red color, then check the seals.

Visit The International M-100 Group for more info. There is a thread on overhauling the compressor. There are also threads on PS pump overhaul.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
