Brake Fluid Capacity
I'm thinking about bleeding my brakes this weekend on my 2009 Sierra using my new Motive Brake Bleeding kit. Does anyone know the fluid capacity of the brake system? I don't want to run short mid-way thru the procedure. I'm at work now and don't have my manual handy.

I'd get at least 2 quarts for a full fluid change and bleed. Get 3 just in case...Christopher

X2, you're going to need more than the capacity of the system because you're going to have to keep pumping it out untill it runs clean & clear & this is an unknown & depends on how clean or dirty your system is. I vote for 3 quarts
