For the rear is it just the bleed valve on the rear caliper. Or is there another I didn't see.

Front I know has one per caliper and a third at the top

The rear master itself needs to be bled down first. Pump/hold/ crack banjo bolt on back side of master. Once it's free of air you and move to bleeder at caliper. Use a rag to keep fluid off paint and plastic

On the rear just try the bleeders first.
The reason the front has a bleeder by the master cylinder is because it's much higher than the calipers.

cool, I just bought one I originally posted, so I can use it on my car later. Ill bleed the rears, and look at the front a little closer. looks like one of the front bleeder valves is a little greasy. so im hoping its just not tightened down well enough.

I just got done with the rear and test rode it. Worked out great. I'm about to start the front.

I just used aquarium tubing from the pet store. It was a little small but I reamed it out with a pen. Set it up to drain in a beer bottle.

Unless the front is a lot harder to drain, to me using a speed bleeder to flush/bleed would seem like more trouble than it's worth.

Okay just did the font calipers and test rode it. Works great...was extremely easy.

Am I missing something? I can't imagine anyone feeling the need to drop 20+ dollars and hook up extra equipment to make the process "easier".

I just installed SS lines and speed bleeders last night. Bleeding the system was extremely easy and quick. The bleeders are well worth the money IMO.

Here's another system I highly recommend if you bleed your brakes often: http://www.motiveproducts.com/
