I saw this post too late! I got a vacuum pump, and though the going was slow, I used it with reasonable success with EchoSSEi. Didn't get all the old fluid completely out, but cleared out the lines and replaced most of the gunky green stuff that was in there. I'll have to remember to get a different one when I have more money!
By the way, the brake job was successful today. I greased the slider pins on the calipers, which was definitely needed because the right front was noticeably more worn than the left front. I only hope I used enough grease to free up the mechanism properly.
The car stops great now, with no squeaking and none of the horrible shaking it was doing before. I just hope this set of rotors can last awhile without warping. I was warping Autozone cheapies like it was my damned job!
