power steering fluid flush

Two questions:

Can I use Mobil 1 syn atf fluid in my PS for an 04' 6.0? or should I stick with the mecron v from ford?

is this the best procedure to flush my ps pump?

did the ps flush over the weekend, with good results. The old fluid wasn't too bad though.

Also replaced brake fluid while I was at it, unbelievable how much firmer my pedal is! brake fluid that I was sucking out was black!

How did you replace the brake fluid? Did you flush that also?

sucked most of the fluid out of the resevoir with my mityvac, dumped in new.

Started at the pass rear caliper and worked my way to the driver front. sucking out the old black fluid until it was clean. make sure to keep an eye on the resevoir so you don't draw in air.

pretty simple job just need the mityvac tool.
