Default Is a power steering filter routine maintenance?

I was browsing RockAuto when I came across an item called a power steering filter. I've never heard of it before. Is this something that needs to be changed at a set interval, like all the other filters?

Yep, it should be replaced the same time you grease the muffler bearing.

Never heard of such a part either. Is it listed for Bonnevilles??? Got a link?

They sell them presumably, I seem to remember water filters (went inline with the top radiator hose) being marketed at one time, seems a better idea than P/* filters.

The only problem is you need a left hand metric screwdriver.
