    Yes, you should have blead it. Car needs to be jacked up on the front with stands placed under the car so that it is steady, so that the front wheels are off the ground. With the engine running you turn the steering slowly full lock left and right a few times while checking the fluid level in the tank above the pump.

    Now you need to find out if you have ruptured any lines and replace them, this includes any seals as well, you also need to check the rack to see if there is a leak there too. Oh, and you might want to check the PS pump too.

    It pays to ask questions / check things - even if the question seems stupid. Does not matter how stupid the question is.

    Do it right the first time, saves you a headache later on.

    Ok the u very much, I guess in a way I did bleed it somewhat... I did turn the wheels as mentioned but not n the air b/c it was on car ramps... I also didn't unhook the return line like the instructions said on the acdelco package but the i just read the Cadillac manual n it doesn't mention that step when bleeding... I just read to not let the reservoir get low when bleeding... I did it with cap on a when left to right a couple times...
