Heard of different brake heat ranges but not power steering fluid yet. Best bet would be to go with reputable brand name I guess or maybe try truck's fluid.

Will leak a bit after extensive steering exercise, but shouldn't be too much unless the fluid is boiling or the cap seals worn off liao...

I wonder if the cooler will affect steering feel/response? Cos now the fluid has a longer route to travel... loss of pressure maybe? Would a steel braided steering hose improve steering feel?

eh... just wondering how often you guys change steering oil...??

i noticed after the seals gave way.... the oil got a rusty color to it

i figured <oil dirty=friction high=high temp=harden seals=irrepairable damage> thinking maybe should change every 10k mileage???
