Not sure if this was covered, but I saw that someone on the boards here had the same problem only to find out that they did have the calipers swapped. If I remember right, the bleed fitting/screw has to be towards the top of the caliper......these are discs....right?

Yup, air bubbles rise in a fluid. That's why the bleeder is at the top.

Don't feel stupid for it. Its a lesson you will never forget. I did it once (trust me, it will only happen once) on my malibu in highschool. A few years later a friend of mine was finishing up a complete restoration on a 69 camaro rs/ss 396 with a richmond 6spd.

We were hanging out one night and he was *****ing that his brakes were all effed up and that was all that holding him up from driving it. We went to take a look at it with another guy (both of these guys were a few years older than me) and see if we could figure it out. On the way to his house, he told me what he had done to it. We get there and the other two start looking at the booster, the master, etc. I stuck my head around one front tire and saw the bleeder was pointing down.

I told him I could fix it in 30 minutes if I I got to drive it for 30 min. They both just looked at me, the young kid, who didn't know as much as they did. They didn't believe that I could do it, but I insisted. He accepted my offer, and shook on it. I told them that calipers were on the wrong sides and to swap them. The three of us did it 20 min. Sure as shat, it fixed it.

I never forgot it when I did it, he will never get that he did it, and you will never forget that you did it. But unlike the guy with the camaro, it won't cost you half tank of 110 race fuel, and most of a set of rear tires. Yeah, that car was bad ***.

Lesson learned.
