Shouldn't help at all. Could try a vac pump, $15 at harbor freight. I usually vac a full catch can out of each caliper, furthest first. Or you can try a mc but I think I've read you have to bring it to the dealer because of the abs.

So just for ****s n giggles. Brake bleeding furthest wheel first, closest last, open bleeder, press brakes down all the way, close bleeder, let off brake pedal... So on n so forth till you get a solid stream from each bleeder...

Your doing it right but I usually have pedal pushed before opening bleeder, and close it prior to pedal reaching the floor. Being on an incline could effect it as you need the air to work it's way out the bleeder, and in incline could make it harder to force the air down the lines

So I noticed something... It didn't do this the last 2 times I bled them. Usually with the bleeder open when the pedal is pressed the fluid comes out with some good pressure, well this time when my helper pressed the pedal the fluid kind of leaked out... barely any pressure at all... This would be the booster then I'm assuming?

ive always used the self bleeder things which is just a bottle with a small hose going to it with a magnet. place the bottle above the bleeder screw, crack the screw, and pump the brakes a few times till the bottle is full. repeat a few times till no more bubbles come out. obviously watching the MC level.

ive used that method with axle swaps and MC swaps with no issues

Lubed the living F*** out of my rear pads and they're still squeaking!!!

Also cut my exhaust before the tailpipe and clamped on a turndown... WAAAAAY too loud while driving, going to the muffler shop tomorrow. I don't know if I'll just get them to put the tailpipe back on and leave it like that with my Dynomax, or get them to take the Dynomax off and put something else. I really want a setup that isn't too loud but isn't just stock + drone either. I'd love the definition of a glasspack without the volume.

Booster does nothing until the engine is running. Have helper pump it Till there is resistance, then hold pedal pushed while you crack the bleeder, close it before he runs out of pedal. Pump it up again, do it again.

Seriously should look at a vac setup. You lose no fluid with them, and make no mess, plus there are many repairs they work well for, and tuning on carb engines.

Took her for some light wheeling, just to put her through her paces. Now, whenever the wheel's at lock, it binds and hops. What the hell did I break?
