Synpower Power Steering Fluid....with Sealer??

All the Synpower PS Fluid I am finding has 'sealer' in it...is anyone else experiencing the same thing?

I have been using the Synpower without sealer....they have it at autozone. It says it "helps stop squeals" but thats all. Been working great in there for over 1.5ish years. I had brown mud in there before I did major flushing, the steering is dramatically smoother and nicer with the Synpower.

I used SynPower w/o sealer since it came out about 10 years ago. Never with the sealer. Never had any problems. But now I use Redline as it is approved by nearly every manufacturer and seems to last alittle longer. Redline is fully Synthetic while SynPower is a syn-dyno blend.

Just my opinion. Free advise is worth what it costs.
