when I bled the brakes did all the fluid come out of the caliper? In other words would compressing the caliper when its off the bracket to extend them(without overextending)and then compressing them flush everything out? Just wondering if doing that would do anything.

theres usually some residual left in the calipers even with the pistons compressed all the way back because theres a small gap behind them to allow fluid to flow behind the pistons.. compressing the piston can sometimes dislodge any debris in the cyls to cause them to plug up the system..

Sparky83 Thanks for the reply. I did squeeze the calipers all the way back when I relubed the pins and that was after I flushed the system with new brake fluid. The brakes feel pretty good now. Thanks again for your help.
