Default GM Power Steering Fluid

Heading down to the dealership to buy some power steering fluid... the 2002 owner's manual says to use part numbers 1052884 (pint) or 1050017 (quart). However, over the phone the dealership said those aren't the right part numbers and to use part number 89020661 instead. Anyone run into this? Is this the same stuff--did the part numbers change recently? Thanks!

I ran into this last year when I did the cam, I ended up with 89021184 not the one in the manual.

I use Valvoline Synpower semi-synthetix power steering fluid.
It's been in my Vett'es for 3 years...
I put about 12K miles per year on my C5.

Talked to some other folks at the dealership who seemed to know what's going on a little more than the person on the phone... here's what I found out in case anyone ever wonders.

1042884 and 1050017 from the owner's manual are not applicable anymore. The part numbers DID change recently.

89020661 is the new number for the 32oz bottle.
89021184 is the new number for the 16oz bottle.

It is a common thing for GM to change part numbers.
