I dont think a pint would be enough for a total change out, wouldnt be much more than that though.

I just did the rear brake upgrade, after the new cylenders went in I blead everything down till the master cly was almost empty then toped it off with new fluid, it was really amazing to me how dark the fluid was that I blead off

One quart has always been more than enough for me. I usually suck all the old fluid out of the master and refill with new before starting bleeding.

Be aware guys...

On the 2002 edition we have the large reservoir on our brake system. I forgot how much it holds... But by the time time I got done bleeding down the system and refilling I was passed the 1 quart bottle... But not by much...

I've seen on several other years of trucks a much smaller reservoir that you could change out with just a quart and have plenty!

Oh BTW...

Another Brake fluid reservoir that we all forget about is the clutch. Now take notice that it never seems to darken and never seems to lose fluid. Why is that???

Answer is easy..

1. The system is complete made of plastics. There is no steel plumbing in this system. So if the fluid has moisture in it there is nothing to attack or oxidize.

2. Clutch system doesn't show wear like the brakes do. In other words as your brake pads wear the piston move outward and you'll start to see a drop in brake fluid to take up the slack.

But you might just keep a watchful eye on that little reservoir. If you really feeling good you might even change it while your doing the brake system. But remember there is NO BLEED screws on the clutch system so don't get any air in it. Just drain the reservoir and refill...
