    Brake fluid and power steering fluid changes

    Hey there, I have a 2006 grand Cherokee 4.7 Laredo with 125k miles running smooth..

    Can I get these services done anywhere or should I get them done at the stealership because they have better fluids?

    1. Brake fluid flush w/Fluid from Dealer? Which one though? (MOPAR® Brake Fluid DOT 3, SAE J1703 (If DOT 3, SAE J1703 brake fluid is not available, then DOT 4 is acceptable. Use only recommended brake fluids.)12 oz. Bottle - p/n 04318080AB or 32 oz. Bottle - p/n 04318081AB?)

    2. Power Steering Flush w/Fluid w/1 Quart Mopar® Hydraulic fluid/Power steering fluid p/n 5142893AA/ Fluid from Dealer?

    Someone also mentioned I shouldn't bother doing a power steering fluid change unless there is a problem...?

    I know I'm alittle late here, but if you want a specific fluid used during a change, you can usually just bring it with you and give it to the shop. I know guys at work that bring premium oil to Jiffy Lube and have them use it.
