Power Steering Filter?

I just did a fluid flush on my 06 F350 King Ranch and was thinking about adding some kind of filter to the steering system. Anyone on here ever do this or know anyone who has? I'm hoping to be able to add something inline with a clear glass/plastic housing so that I can visually check it easier. Maybe something along the same lines as the glass fuel filters you see for sale at Advanced or AutoZone or PepBoys. Just puttin it out there! Thanks!

Since this post, I have gotten rid of the 06 and ended up 6 months later getting another, only this one is an 04. Same set up though! Since getting it, I've learned a lot and done a lot but still have this same question. So I'll ask again hoping someone out there can help me with it. That being, is there any may of adding an in-line filter to the power steering lines? And if so, what kind of filter is recommended? Thanks again!

A filter would be a good idea for sure, would definitely make the steering/brake system last longer

Would need to be in the return line and have a bypass built in
a filter base with differential pressure switch would be handy to know when the filter was bypassing
the size of the filter would be a consideration, as there is not much room

I don't think a clear base is wise, because of the heat in the steering system

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

I use one on the return line from the hydro boost
it makes flushing easier also

these will bypass if clogged ( safety )

as far as running a clear unit it wouldn't help much since the return flow is only under braking or turning

Found this one, has a 4 micron paper filter and magnet inside

The vid shows a guy taking a used one apart -- thought he was gonna lose a finger
The top screws off ...lol
Looks like it is about $15- $20
5/16, 3/8, 1/2 inch sizes
seems to be sold under various names -- Raybestos, Magnefine, ATP, maybe more

I am thinking I will put one on my truck

Would work on the transmission too, if you dont have one already

Just goes to show, you always learn something from powerstroke.org
