Power Steering Fluid

The dealer has had my 05 GC with Hemi for over a week trying to find a high-pitched squeal at startup, and has had a Chrysler engineer working with them to try to isolate it. One of the things the Chrysler engineer had them do was flush the power steering system, and replace the power steering fluid with ATF+4 fluid. I was surprised at this, since the Jeep has always called for Power Steering Fluid instead of ATF, but all my other vehicles have used ATF in the power steering pump for many years. Anyone have any experience with this?

And, no, they still haven't found the high-pitched squeal on startup....

On my old 2004 Lincoln LS, the steering would also squeak inside, like a rubbing noise. The L/M dealer drained the fluid, added a friction fighter and it would be good to go for about six months. Back to the dealer for the same. Thank God it is someone elses problems now (traded in on '07 Impala SS).
