I replace front pads in a suzuki sidekick 94, bleed the line only at front. Now the pedal goes to the floor. Do I need to bleed at rear too>

    why bleed. If you only replaced pads, no reason to bleed. Was the reservoir empty? was there a leak? Replaced caliper? Maybe you just need to pump brake to get pads back to rotor.

Always bleed all four wheels, there is AIR in the system somewhere. Although the front and rear have seperate cylinders in the master, bleed at the wheels---to insure all air is out.

    You're welcome. Just insure all air is bled out, keep an eye on master cylinder fluid level when bleeding, do not let it get too low!!!
