Default 2010 Ram 1500 Front Brake Caliper Replacement

Hey gang,

I just did the brakes on the truck. Pads and rotors were pretty straight forward, but I ran into a snag with the right front caliper. Both pistons in the caliper were split/cracked. I picked up a new (reman'd) caliper and installed it. Again, nothing too complicated but now can't seem to bleed the air out of the system. The brake pedal is still going right to the floor.

I have done some reading here on the Z and in some other places, but can not seem to find the definitive guide for the 2010.

Any help is appreciated as my truck is stuck in my driveway.

Mods: Extang Tri-fold Soft Tonneau Cover, Bed Liner, Volant CAI

Stupid question, did they get you the correct side caliper? Is the bleeder screw on the top or is it facing down.
