Two bleed nipples on rear caliper

Hi guys

I have a 2005LT that I am about to flush the ABS to calipers and noticed
that there are two bleed nipples on the rear caliper.
Should I flush both ?

Yes - but first press the pistons all the way in as that eliminates any trapped fluid. Bleed the inboard first followed by the outboard. You will see only about an inch of old fluid on the outboard bleed hose but better to get rid of it while you are there.
