best way to bleed is with 2 people. One person sits in car & turns on ignition. Second person is at RR caliper. Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleeder and place the other end in a glass jar with about 1/2" of brake fluid(DOT 3) in it. turn key on and have driver SLOWLY depress brake pedal about 3 or 4 ". open bleeder for no more than 15 seconds or untill there are no bubbles.Close bleeder before releasing the brake pedal. may have to do this 3 or 4 times. (maybe only once....just depends on the bubbles) keep a close eye on the brake fluid levels. once you are bubble free, move to LR. this method can use a a lot of brake fluid. Make sure you clean around the power unit cover before opening it. autozone has some good info

you also might want to consider purchasing speed bleeders for the car (especially if you plan on owning it a while)

motormite (dorman) makes them. they sell them at advance, pepboys, and autozone. pretty common knowledge.
