Daughters school car, she comes home to do laundry. Packs up to go back to school 50 miles away, comes inside says brake pedal going to floor. Opened reservoir, no fluid visable. Added some pumped brakes, still mushy, resrvoir empty again, look under car big puddle under left rear. Obvious wheel cylinder shot. (whole damn rear brakes shot). Rebuilt the works with a bunch of advice culled from this AWESOME forum.
Ready to tackle other side, my question (finally!) is should I add fluid now to pump and adjust the shoes on left side before working the right side?

If you haven't bleed the left side already might as well do the right and bleed them at the same time. It wouldn't be a bad idea to bleed the front brakes while you're at it, they might have sucked in some air when the reservoir got low. This will also give you the opportunity to flush the brake fluid which is never a bad idea with an 11 year old car.
