proper way to bleed samurai brakes?

i have a 93 samurai and just installed my YJ suspension kit. i noticed that the rear passenger side drum doesnt have a bleeder valve on it but there is a bleeder on the proportioning valve. do i have to bleed the driver rear first then go straight to the front passenger side or should i bleed the proportioning valve after rear driver side drum?

Re: proper way to bleed samurai brakes?

I've had the best luck bleeding the proportioning valve first then the drivers rear ,passenger front,driver's front.

After we bleed the brakes on the samurai we always go ride on a gravel road by my house (wask board road) then bleed the brakes again,really helps get all the air out the system and give a good pedal feel again.

Re: proper way to bleed samurai brakes?

same as above but
i have found that if you take a jack and raise the right rear tireup higher tha the left and make sure its lower than the m/c it wil bleed much easier. if you can cap off the line did it first at the right rear than do your swao when you are finished runing th lines leave it un hooked at the drivers right make sure you have the m/c full of fluid and let it gravity bleed while it is leaking hook up to the rear slave cylinder after it drips for afew sec. close it up fill up the fluid then start bleeding the brake lines
