Pump the pedal for rear brakes the bottom bleeder not the top it went fine and bleed the other rest with the pedal to the floor with car running bleeding pressure is good.
Tested on the side street for like half hour works fine, but the problem i have with the breaks when i try to go on the freeway the rear brakes locked up and the break pedal went up and stiff but i was try to press the hard couple of times and it let go thank god, any one had this problem?

sorry about the spelling
