I'm going to be replacing the brake lines on my '04 2500HD.

Do I need to cycle the ABS in order to bleed them and, if so, how do I do that?

Thanks in advance -

K

Usually done with the appropriate scanner, I've some success removing the fuses and this causes the abs valves to "home", then the abs can be bled.

Or you can Google " gravel road bleeding " it works every time.

Just to close the loop here: I'm all set.

I bought the GM replacement "kit" (GM part #22932565 for a crew cab 6.5ft box) which consists five pre-bent lines - four for the front and one going to the rear.

Bleeding was no problem. I was able to gravity bleed to get started and then did a vacuum bleed. I've been driving it for a couple weeks now and will probably go back and do one more pressure bleed when it is convenient.

The pre bent lines were nice, for the front. For the rear there were some tight spots behind the fuel tank, crossing over the rail and under the rear wire harness bundle. I think it would have been easier for that to be a straight line and bend to suit under the truck.

Hardest part about the whole thing was getting the stuck brake bleeder screws out.

I had to get a new caliper for my Suburban. I got 3 bleeders loose and one twisted off.
