POWER STEERING SYSTEM
GM Power Steering Fluid GM P/N 89021184 (Canadian P/N 89021186) or equivalent.

GM vehicles aren't very picky when it comes to power steering fluid. If you cannot obtain original GM Power Steering fluid, a "good brand name" will do just fine. Try to stay away from "convenience store" brands like "Snap" and lean more towards a good quality brand. NAPA makes a good one. STP makes a good one.

what would you recommend as a generic fluid?

Like I say- NAPA makes a good one, so does STP. As long as it says on the back label, "Approved for GM vehicles" you'll be fine.
