    Best power steering stuff / brake fluid to use..........?

    Obviously it calls for ATF Dextron II for the P/S. I am wondering if someone is using something better........?

    I have no issues, nor leaks. Wanted to flush out the system along with the brake system. So I was curious to know if someone has discovered something better than DEXTRON II/ III/ or whatever number they are up to now.

    I was planning to use the german ATE Blue DOT 4 for the brakes. All my brakes are just about brand-new ( EBC crossdrilled rotors f & R with EBC Greenstuff pads; always had very good luck with them in my LRs), but I've owned my DII for a year, and that is the one thing that has not been flushed /serviced.

    Input from the Oracle, AS ALWAYS, much appreciated.

    Redline P/s is what I use in all my classics. Do you have a stock pile of ATE super blue like I do? It was recalled almost 2 years ago and has not been available.... this was due to an idiot user thinking it was coolant.

    Pentosin super dot 4 is what we use in all of our Porsche's

    * Is the Redline PS fluid a generic ( all-cars) type fluid ? Will it work ok on a DII ?

    * Actually, I used the last of my ATE Super Blue ( from PartsHeaven) in a 65' MBZ 220s. Instead, I got a nice deal on CASTROL DOT4 sysnthetic ( 3 big bottles for $27).
