I had a 91 Explorer that I could never get all the air out (front disc/rear drum). Since then, I have not looked forward to brake jobs.
It takes a few times to completely trust the bleeder, but it is doing its job. I wasn't sure if air was getting past because the tube I used kept bubbling around the speedbleeder.
After redoing the back wheels it became like second nature. I drained the whole reservoir from MAX to MIN through each caliper to make sure the fluid was completly fresh. When I was done, I could feel the brakes grab a little quicker. All in all a good experience. I appreciate the recommendation since this site is where I got the idea.
