Default Bleeding Brakes

I've never bleed the brakes on a car with anti-lock brakes. Is it the same method used on cars without it? Since mine is a stick, the clutch sly shares the same reservoir. Has anyone ever Done it to their 05-up mustang?
-Thanks

Bleeding the brakes on these is easy. However you may consider buying the tool that will allow you to push the piston back into the caliper. Makes replacing pads much easier.

Yes, the method is the same for anti-lock vs regular brakes.

The method is the same, but because you can't pulse the ABS system there is some old fluid left in there. Nothing major though.

When you do change the pads you can only use the C-clamp on the front pistons. The rear you have to screw back in using the tool (which you can rent from O'Reilly, Autozone, etc).
