On the Z51 brakes do the calipers have two bleeder valves? Looks like one is on top and one is on bottom of caliper (the only nippily looking things with a rubber cap I could find). I need to flush brakes and put race fluid in and was going to do it this weekend but I am unfamiliar with the corvette and would really appreciate a little help. Read a lot about inside versus outside bleed valves but these brakes seem to be different.

I would expect that its the same caliper for left and right (cuts costs and part numbers to stock) so you would always have a bleeder on top. Assuming I'm correct, just using the top bleeder would be the normal way to go.
I'm sure someone else will pipe in if this isn't correct.

Art said he expects that it would have been the top valve if, by chance, that caliper had been installed on the other side of the car.
