Since it is a split system, separating the fronts and backs, is it ok to just bleed the front brakes after replacing the two front brake lines? Seems like it should be, but thought I should check. Thanks

Sure, but if you haven't done it in a while you should also bleed the rears to flush the old contaminated fluid out. Might as well keep the front and rear on the same flushing schedule.

Thanks, I will be doing the rears in the near future,since I bought new brake lines for them also. Just wanted to know if I could split the job into two parts.
