My steering is going out at 24000 miles. Mechanic says it's the rack and pinion gear. Any ideas why this would happen at such low milage?

It's the bottom seal on the Rack and Pinion.
The original went at 50k.
The New replacement had the same seal leak at 500 miles.
The Warranty replacement was destroyed by UPS at the same seal.
The shipping box was covered in Power Steering Fluid.
So, I am trying a different New brand.
Since I didn't opt for a 3rd Warranty replacement, I have this big credit.
No refund was available per policy.
I thought that New would be better then Remanufactured.
But, maybe not.
If there is a next time, I'm looking into Flaming River to make a custom one.
The way that they make parts today is just a crap shoot.
Best of Luck.
