I replaced the rear calipers recently. I left the rear calipers off for a while waiting for new ones to ship. I lost a lot of fluid due to that. I went ahead and did a speed bleed of the rear calipers starting with the right rear. I *think* that the master ran dry by leaving the calipers off but I am not sure. Do the fronts now need to be bled as well?
I am also concerned because I purchased a set of Dorman speed bleeders and they bottomed out meaning the hex nut reached the caliper. I read a post on tuners where someone had that problem with some russell speed bleeders and it is supposed to be a no-go and yet when I press the brakes after the speed bleeders are tightened no fluid comes out so I am not sure if the speed bleeder is really at fault. In reality, I have only replaced just the left rear speed bleeder with the Dorman. The rest are Russell speed bleeders. For whatever reason, the speed bleeder/bleeder hole on the old caliper was only m8 as opposed to M10.
