I'm going to have that off ofcourse but I keep getting mixed opinion's. Do I just remove the cap for the break fluid res or do I really need to loosen the bleeder line? I didn't for my fronts and had no issues.

the reason you slightly open the bleeder valves is to not put burnt brake fluid back up into the lines when you push the cylinders back in.

But doesn't that open up the potential of air to get into the lines? Do you have a break down of the process id need to do to complete it that way by any chance? I usually bleed and change my break fluid every year so I'm not sure that its super serious to open it now though..

You just do a standard bleed when you are done. Not much air would be able to get in given the bleeder valves are above the brake line input connection to the caliper. The net is you shouldn't have to bleed very much out.
