    Open LF inner bleeder, have second person gently / slowly bring pedal to the floor (without forcing it), close bleeder n slowly bring pedal back up, repeat until no air then do inner.
    Move to RF and repeat.
    Move to RR and repeat.
    Move to LR and repeat (monitor fluid level as you go)
    If pedal still poor, crack lines at the master cylinder and gently bring pedal down, hold n close both lines, repeat second time then try pedal.

    Don't pump then open bleeders, as above only.

    How is it agitated without the scanner?

    Rick should the key be turned to the on position? I am told this powers the ABS module?

    some scanners have a built in option to activate the ABS valve - this can also be done by hard braking and activating that way (not recommended) if yo took you calipers off be sure you put them on the correct side - bleeder screws should at the top...

    Mentioned in another thread that the brakes are all good now.

    Updating that I just installed my VMP triple pass heat exchanger with dual fans....nice piece and pretty straight forward installation! I never drove the car in the warm temps last year but I am sure this will be a great mod.
