You can not put ATF in a steering rack, you can out atf in a steering box though. i would use valvoline syn power synthetic power steering fluid, thats what i use in everything and i like it because it quiets those ford steering pumps.

wow my truck came with ATF in the power steering system from the factory!

maybe i should post the TSB from ford stating to use mercon V in power steering systems because ford is not making regular mercon anymore.
