    I ordered my caliper today, it'll be in on the 16th, but I need to know how much brake fluid I should get, and what type? Whatever came in it stock as far as I know is what is in it.

    What car and are you flushing the system entirely or just going to bleed until the air bubbles are out?

    If you're flushing the entire thing, you'll want atleast a big bottle to make sure you get all the old fluid out and replaced with new fluid and that you've bled all the air from the lines.

    Different brands and types of fluid come in different size containers. My Motul 5.1 brake fluid costs more and is sold in smaller portions than say a typical 3.0 prestone fluid.

    I'm replacing one caliper, so I just need to bleed the line for it.
