rear brake bleeding question

when you all bleed the brakes are you doing something special with the left rear?

the bleeder screw is on the bottom which is why I ask. I did a quick bleed last night and couldnt get a firm pedal. Today I was going to invert the left rear and gravity bleed it so the bleeder was at the top, then bleed like normal.

I can report back on how that goes.

If the bleeder is on the bottom, u have the wrong caliper on there!! What yr Ex do u have? I recently did my rears and the computer at advance auto parts pulled up the wrong parts. I have an early build 2000 and the calipers r mounted to the left of the rotor on both sides. Which means it is actually the same caliper for each side. The computer pulled up different part numbers bc ford changed the calipers mid-year and r mounted toward the rear on both sides. Hope this helps!!

Do you happen to know when they switched that. Ive been messing with the Ex's rear end the last couple of days and both of my calipers are definitely on the inside. My truck is a 12/99 build

NM, i read it the wrong way. I thought you were saying that the actual caliper itself on one wheel was on the outside. You just mean that they mount on the left of the rotor as you're looking at them. Doi moment.

Yep, different mounts. The bleeder screw is always to be on top.

No, that's the 01 or 02+ calipers. The 2000 caliper is ahead of the axle and the bleeder screw is in the other location.

Does anyone have a pic of the brake setup for the 2000. I was thinking of regearing and buying an axle with 4.30 gears already because its so cheap. I didnt know that there was a different setup.

On a 2000, one caliper is in the leading position and the other in the trailing position. They used the same caliper.
