Power steering bleeding
I need to know if there is a specific way to bleed the steering gear box? Here is why it needs to be done. It all started out as a complete front end job, new balljoints, pitman arm, ilderarm and idlerarm bracket, and new tie rods (inner and outer). Well in the process of trying to get that damn pitman arm off we sprung a leak in the powersteering gear box. So I bought a new one, and did like you always do and turn the wheel back and forth. After about 50 of these back and forth's it still gives a little squeal (not much). So I take it for a ride and make a bunch of left and right turns, with a bunch of stopping and starting, but still squeals a little (not much). Should I do a complete PS Flush? It was just done less than 500miles ago!
