what's the right power steering fluid - 07 grand cherokee

I have an 07 Hemi grand cherokee. My power steering fluid was almost completely dry. I went to the auto parts store and bought Mopar pwer steering fluid +4, MS-9062. After reading my owner's manual, it said to only put Mopar hydraulic fluid and the one I put in didn't say it was hydraulic. The part number in the manual is not the one i put in the car. My question is....was the fluid I put in the right one?

Afraid not.

The correct ps fluid for the hemi is only available from the dealer.

I would drain, flush, and refill with the proper stuff.

Doc is right - you need to get the power steering fluid flushed out and replaced with Chrysler's OEM fluid. I had mine flushed at a local shop not long ago and they used the standard power steering fluid. The difference between the OEM and the standard fluid was noticeable immediately. I went ahead and flushed it again - this time at the dealer.
