Default Replaced 1 caliper, need to bleed both sides?

Replaced the drivers side front caliper on my ZJ.

Didn't clamp off the line, drained, filled a 16oz water bottle about half way.

Filled up the reservoir, and bled the new caliper.

Is there any reason to bleed the passenger side as well? Is there any way for air to have gotten in the passenger side line?

technically no you shouldn't need to bleed the other side. i however will bleed all 4 after doing any work that involves opening the system to outside air. that will guarantee that there is no air in the system.

front and rear are two completely separate hydraulic circuits. If you worked on the front, you should bleed both fronts, if you work on the rear, you should bleed both rear...the only time you really need to bleed them all is if you took something apart that affects both circuits, like the master cyl or ABS valve, or you worked on both circuits
