1994 2WD front brake line replacement help

My passenger side brake line was coming in to contact with the coil spring causing a leak. I have acquired a replacement but would like assistance in proper installation and bleeding procedure. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Put a large bowl or bucket under work area, brake fluid is caustic.

Cut old flexible hose
Remove old flexible hose from frame brake line and caliper.

Remove caliper.

Put new flexible hose on frame brake line.
Open the cap on master cylinder
Brake fluid should start to drain down into the new flexible hose, gravity bleed.
Hold end of hose up high to get all the air out, tap on the hose to get all the air out

After no air is seen start screwing on the caliper on to the hose, yes you have to turn the caliper not the hose, lol.
After it is tight hold caliper up high and open bleeder, hold it so bleeder is at the top where air would be, tap new flexible hose to get all the air out.
When no air is seen coming out tighten bleeder.
Check brake fluid in master, top it up.

Reinstall caliper.
Put cap back on master cylinder
have someone press down on brake pedal while you open bleeder to release any air that might still be in there, if no air is seen then you are done.
If alone you can use a stick or 2x4 propped against seat to put pressure on brake pedal, then open bleeder.
