I've of people having similar problems because they either did not remove the old O-rings or did not seat the new O-rings properly. Check you work carefully.

When you removed the old hoses, did cup seals come out (should have been on the ends of the piping), or did you remove o-rings from inside the manifold where the hoses go into? Also, did you purchase the hoses that use o-rings, or hoses that use cup seals. There are two different designs.

Nothing came out but I can see one cup seal in one side but not in the other side where the hose connect to the rack

Well, if I were in your shoes, I would remove the cup seal that stayed in the rack, and then put new cup seals on your power steering lines and reconnect them to the steering rack. That should take care of the leak.

Should I put new cup seals in both ports for the rack or just the one closest to the passenger side of the trailblazer

First, remove the seal that was left behind and throw it away. Second, use a new cup seal on both lines. Note: Verify that the lines you purchased are the ones that use cup seals as there are 2 kinds of hoses; one type uses cup seals, and the other uses o-rings as the ends are different.
