    I'm hoping it's a sticky caliper making my brakes pull, so i'm changing out both calipers and bleeding the whole system. i'd like to flush it out too. What do ya'll use to flush the system??? Just new brake fluid?? Any other advice or tips would be appreciated. Thanks - Doug

    Suck most of the old fluid out of the master cylinder using a turkey baster or something then fill it up with fresh fluid and bledd it a bunch then repeat until the fluid is clean... Takes a while IMO...I am just going to take it to brakes plus and have them flusht he system then power bleed the thing...

    hey -- I've replaced the calipers, slide pins, pads, and flushed about 3 quarts through the thing ... my truck still pulls ... let me know if you find out what it is.
