PowerSteering Fluid Question

Does anyone know what the 6.4's rolled off the line with for Powersteering fluid? I know they have ATF in them, but curious which ATF. I just changed the fluid and filter in my tranmission last weekend, and I noticed today that the power steering was a little low, I have some Mercon LV left over I thought about using to top it off until I have time for a full flush, but not sure what's in it, or if I should mix with the LV?

Just give Ford parts dept. a quick call, they should be able to tell you that right away.

If it keeps running low, check the weep hole under your hydroboost for leakage. I had to have my hydroboost replaced a few months ago because it was leaking where it mounts to the master cylinder.
