ok, so it turns out the front d44 bleeder is NOT supposed to be pointing straight up :x
it faces back towards the rear of the vehicle horizontally. so that fixed my brake issue.

i think i can say it is officially done..... well with this phase anyway. i have been driving it around town off and on for the past few weeks. it feels very comfortable doing 70-75 on the highway...which was very important for me. the rear spool will take some getting used to.
i cant wait to see how well it does offroad.
