Hello and thanks for the donation!

If you haven't ran the vehicle with the brake fluid in the power steering system for very long than most likely it has not caused any permanent damage. You can drain the system and replace it with the correct GM power steering fluid. Place a drain pan under the rack and pinion and remove the power steering pressure and return lines from the rack assembly to drain the fluid.
