Rear brakes

1994 Olds Bravada 4.3L (vin W)
To bleed the rear drums, It has A.B.S on. No Scan tool/ Tech II need?
Are Raybestos brake wheel cylinders/hoses, a good brand?
What is the the torque spec for the u-bolts holding the rear diff?
I checked all autoparts, some carry cheap ones/not the right ones
A place that installs shock/struts/spring?

Hi Mr NutCase,

Raybestos are very good, they have been around forever

The preferred method for bleeding ABS is with a vacuum bleeder,
also the bleeding order is from the master cylinder out then LF,RF,LR,RR
Good luck,

I have also successfully bled the brakes in ABS vehicles using only a vacuum bleeder tool.
