How to bleed the steering system: Jack the front-end up so the wheels are off the ground an inch or so. Without the engine running (!), slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth from lock to lock at least a dozen times to bleed the air out. Add fresh fluid as necessary but realize the fluid level will go up and down as you cycle the steering back and forth. That simply means to not overfill it at its low point as doing so will cause it to overflow and make you think you have a big leak. Don't ask me how I know this.
When you have a choice, buy American.
