ok so i replaced the drivers side rear line and the passenger side front caliper. the master cylinder drained pretty good. so what would be the best way to bleed them. i tried the traditional way with the car off. but with the car running it is a little spongy still. a friend mentioned a kit to hook up to the master cylinder. please help

If you drained all the fluid out of the master cylinder, you now need to bench bleed the master cylinder or you will never get all the air out of the system.

You get air into the master cylinder, you then need to bench bleed it. Get lines that connect MC output and turn up and into the reservoir and then pump the pedal until you get no air bubbles. Then reconnect the lines and finish bleeding normally.

I have "Speed Bleeders" or "One Man Bleeders", I've gotten air in the MC and these seem to bleed properly without having to bench bleed the MC. The Speed Bleeders are just bleeder screws with one-way check valves.

You can have it pressure bled by a pro, OR, I "think" but don't know for sure, using the vacuum bleeders will also remove the air from MC, probably NOT as well pressure bleeding though.
