A question about bleeding brakes

I want to remove the calipers on my Zl1 and I'm wondering about bleeding procedure on the install. I have the service manuals but they treat the brembos the same as others as far as bleeding but there are 2 bleeding caps per caliper on the brembo brake and I'm wondering if there is a specific procedure as to which one should be bled 1st. or both at the time. I suspect a lots of people have done this already.

The rule is always bleed from the furthest point from the master cylinder first and work your way to the closest.

I was told bleeding is done starting with passenger side rear, drivers side rear, passengers side front and then drivers side front. Also outside bleeder first then inside bleeder. Hope that helps!

Sorry but it seems I didn't explain properly, the way to bleed is in the service manual, right rear, left rear, right front, left front, but what I don't know is bleed the inside or outside pistons on the brembo break caliper.

Both of us did answer you properly. Which one is further away from master, inner or outer.

If it's distance from the master wouldn't it be DR, PR, DF, PF?

No, ABS block is on the passenger side so driver side line goes to the passenger side and back to the driver side.

I don't plan to go jack up the car and measure the line but the service manual 2013 for all Camaro models , vol.1 p. 5-101-2, right rear, left rear, right front and left front and that's good enough for me as long as I got my answer.
