Default Brake bleed question / notification of spare parts

Hi: I recently bled all the lines using a hand held vacuum pump. I was able to get a real good bleed flow going for the front calipers however I could not get the same flow ( I achieved approximately 30% flow by comparison) for the rear calipers. Is this normal? I have driven the car for about 100 miles and have complete confidence in their stopping power. I just thought I bleed flow should have been a little more similar.

Also, I have placed a whole bunch of spare parts under Ebay seller rb626 at real bargain prices. "PM" me with questions/needs.

Thanks, Ren
