Have you started the vehicle? Is the Brake fluid still in the resvoir or have you pumped it through the entire system? Brake fluid is very damaging to almost any type of rubber. You can soak an O ring in brake fluid and it will swell to 4 times its normal size. I would try to get the brake fluid out of the system as soon as you can. ASAP!! Drain and refill the system several times to attempt to disipate the brake fluid. In my opinion this is not a good thing to have happen. This could get expensive if the seals in the stearing system can not handle brake fluid.
