I also got the stoptech lines. I'm just going to stick with the pentosyn dot 4 lv. Do I really need the computer to bleed, can't I just tap the calipers and the abs pump thing with a rubber mallet? I feel like that's in the same category as using a torque wrench for everything.

There were a few posts about the rear caliper bolts being difficult to get at. Any issues back there, I would think an impact can fit?
Yeah I almost went yellow - its like Phoenix Yellow. Its like baby barf. I decided on orange.

And yes - I used a pressure bleeder w/o issue at all. I use these:

Clamp off the lines or act quick and no risk of air getting up into the modules. That's when you need the computer assist bleed.
