well im replacing all my brakes on my 01 250 4wd, i got all 4 powerstop slotted and drilled rotors, powerstop severe duty pads front and rear, and braided lines from crown performance. i also plan on cleaning all the calipers and assuring that the slide pins are relubed and will work correctly. napa has all 4 calipers and slide pins in stock if i end up needing them. lastly i am going to replace all the fluid. how should i go about that? i thought about pulling all the lines off and letting them drain overnight, also thought about blowing the lines out with air, or should i just bleed each corner til i get clean fluid? any suggestions??

I would just bleed each corner until you get clean fluid. blowing the lines out with air would probably put alot of moisture from the air compressor in the lines. It might also harm the ABS valves

If you can get a vacuum bleeder it makes it really easy and you can do it by yourself
