Bleeding brakes after repairs
Recently redid the front brakes, replaced rotors, calipers and brake lines. When done, bled the front brakes on passenger side and then drivers.

Decided to also take a look at the rear drums which also really looked pretty good and just needed cleaning. Since the bleeder on one looked almost rounded off for whatever reason, I replaced both bleeders.
I then bled passenger side on the rear and then drivers, to get any air out, flush out old fluid in the master cylinder and lines and replace with fresh.

Since the correct process is right rear, left rear, right front, left front, and the fronts were bled prior to work on the back, is it necessary to bled the fronts again??

I understand doing the longest line to the shortest line theory but is it really necessary since the MC is really two separate braking systems, isnt it??

You should be good to go, as long as your brake warning light doesn't stay on after you start it. You are correct about the dual master cylinder bleeding compared to a single master cylinder. Out of habit I still do the rear longest line first.

Thanks for saving me some work, Don!
