    I need to replace my calipers and cylinders, and I'll probably do the flex lines too. Should I flush the system first (getting all crap out), then replace parts, or do parts then flush? Flush from the master cyl. down or from bleeders up? I'm thinking of getting one of those Phoenix Injector things; anyone have any experience with one? Thanks.

    DO MY BRAKES ONCE EVERY TWO YEARS, I USE A MITY-VAC THESE CAN BE BOUGHT ALMOST AT NY AUTO PARTS STORE, BUT I THINK J.C. WHIITTNEY WAS THE CHEAPEST? SEEMS TO WORK PRETTY GOOD.
    ALSO I WOULD REPLACE THE THREE HOSES WHILE YOU ARE AT IT.
    SINCE YOU HAVE TOO BLEED THE LINE ANYWAY I WOULD NOT FLUSH FIRST. GOOD LUCK!
