i just use a clean oversized medical syringe(without the needle)from my clinic....or go to your local Autozone/PEP boys and get a simple universal liquid suction device or a Mighty Vac-Brake Bleeder ($30)- also handy for brake vacuum bleeding.

Did you actually drain the power steering system or did you syphon the fluid out? If you drained it, how did you do it?
